Description

Great Scott is the longest trail at a little over 7 miles and has some small climbs, creek crossings, several boardwalks & the biggest ramp (with a bypass).

The early part of Great Scott passes behind the Miami Valley Astronomical Society observatory.

The Frankenlight Loop is the farthest section of Great Scott and has open flowing trail among some beautiful hardwood trees as well as some nice rocky creek crossings. Great Scott is the third left off of Arboretum Loop. Great Scott starts directly across from Abracadabra and finishes behind the big gravel parking lot near the kiosk.

My favorite section of the trail here - light always amazing through this part of the forest.  Wish I could take credit for lining up the trees at the bend in the trail - just dumb luck.
