This hike mixes a classic streamside greenway with a natural surface loop around a hilly meadow mixed with trees. The hardest part of the hike may be finding the trailhead parking the first time. After making your way to the path’s beginning, enjoy a level stroll along big Morgan Creek to reach Merritts Pasture, a large greenspace. From there, climb a hill to enjoy a fine Piedmont vista then circle down Merritts Pasture. From there it is a simple backtrack to the trailhead.
