Description

Acorn starts at the Broadmeadow Street parking lot. It's an excellent return if you just finished Backpacker and need to get back, and a decent trail in it's own right which climbs a long ridge like hill in the low lying north-west corner of the park.

From the Broadmeadow Street lot, the trail begins climbing almost immediately. This hill isn't particularly large, but you start from one of the parks lowest lying parts. After cresting the hill, the downhill starts.

Partway through the downhill, you'll reach a four way intersection. To the left is Backpacker, which will take you back to the Broadmeadow Street lot. Strait ahead is the Rathion Loop, and to the right is Backpacker and Acorn. Take the right to stay on Acorn.

Another brief downhill leads to the next intersection, here Backpacker continues strait, while Acorn heads to the right.

After taking the right hand turn, the trail levels out and heads back towards Broadmeadow Street, ending at close to the start of Bear Paw, on the other side of the street.
