You can do a shorter version of this loop by starting at the Wild Cherry/ Dogwood Trailhead on 53rd. Gorgeous part of Forest Park, this is truly a Sunday afternoon stroll type setting. There is a bit of incline on the Alder trail, as well as Wild Cherry if you're coming up from Wildwood. Wild Cherry and Alder trails are less populated than Wildwood which makes those parts of the trail more enjoyable, imo.
