Really enjoyable hike in the heart of the city. My husband and I did this in a couple of hours one afternoon trying to beat the rain. While it was unseasonably warm for December, it was an excellent hike. It is hard to tell what is part of the old Forest Loop and what is part of just the other trails in the park so I did this also in conjunction with the other portions of the Overton Park trails - to make sure you’re actually on the Old Forest Loop follow the markers along the trail.
