Clear Creek Loop

Clear Creek Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This loop takes place at a scenic metro park that also has the special designation of state nature preserve. Start the hike cruising the forests and dales along Clear Creek, exploring bottoms and blu?s.

Leave the riparian zone for wooded hills, making a solid climb, and hike through upland meadows managed for wildlife. Revel in a forest cruise atop Cemetery Ridge, passing a relic barn from when this nature preserve was farmland, eight score distant. Descend steeply to enjoy the Clear Creek bottoms one more time before returning to the trailhead."
