The well-marked Yellow Loop Trail is the longest trail in the park. It varies from wide trails in some areas to narrow singletrack in others. It's also sometimes used by hikers and dog walkers so watch out for pedestrians and remember to yield.

The trail is marked with white metal circles with yellow arrows. Follow the arrows and it's tough to get lost.

The trail's well marked and not too technical nature makes it a great ride if you are a new mountain biker, but it has just enough sizzle to keep it fun for all skill levels. For experienced riders it's a great way to get around the park and add miles to a ride.

Start off at the second left off the Power Lines Road, and follow the trail north into the woods. Turn left at a stone wall, and follow it to the southwest. Follow the yellow arrows around a left turn and heading northwest. Cross several long boardwalks over a marshy area.

As the trail reaches its apex at the north end, it narrows and crosses a few bridges. After reaching the north end, the trail turns and heads back southeast. Cross over the "teeter-totter" bridges over a muddy area and then a big climb and descent, followed by a rooty section just below the highway (Rt. 3). From here, climb up to a great view over the highway.

The trail then brings you back to the Power Lines Road - head north down a steep and sometimes washed out descent towards the highway, then turn and head back into the woods. The trail follows back up one last climb past some interesting cairns before bringing you back to the Power Lines Road.
