Family Friendly This trail has steeper climbs and descents than the Yellow Loop and smaller children will most likely have to walk those sections. It is, however, the more scenic of the two.

Bikes are allowed on the Red Loop , Green Loop, Yellow Loop and Blue Loop. Stay off the horse trails. All trails are directional (counterclockwise.) The park does close at night. The trails DO pass through hunting land, wear blaze orange in season.

Description

This is a bit more challenging than the Yellow Loop. This trail DOES NOT start at the mountain bike trailhead. Follow the signs to the Whitford Lake pavilion and parking lot. Marker #1 is at the south end of the mowed grass. There is a small kiosk with a map of the trail. This trail is wooded and has many nice lake views with a wide, smooth, singletrack tread. There are some steep climbs and descents on this trail. There are also some short stretches of sand as on all the trails at the Fort. About a half mile into the ride, you'll see an old homestead on your right with concrete remains of the barn and a silo still standing. There are many spring flowers and Redbud planted by the original owners which continue to bloom along this section of trail.

This is a multi-use trail which includes equestrians. Keep in mind - they have the right of way. If you are overtaking an equestrian give them clear notice and dismount to walk past the horse. If approaching from opposite directions, dismount and stand off the trail until the equestrian passes.
