Very nice hike. We started at the equestrian parking and went left, the stayed left down to the river. Following that trail hooks you back up with the Gerle loop. It is a bit shorter but so nice walking along the river. We went mid day and it was warm but nice amounts of shade kept it comfortable. Decent little hill towards the end to get your heart rate up a bit but still a nice easy hike. We are looking forward to returning and doing more of the trails here.
