Description

Morning Choice starts at the southern Landing Road entrance. From the landing road entrance, you turn left (There are two trails to the left, take the one to the right). Continue following this trail, running parallel to Landing road. You'll sort of dead-end into a trailhead, turn left to stay on morning choice. You'll then come a split, where there is a sign pointing to the left stating "to Cascade." You want to go right here to stay on Morning Choice (left takes you to Chuck Norris, and Lewis and Clark Trails). You'll know you headed in the correct direction when the trail daylights to a field at Belmont for approximately 100'.

The trail eventually comes back into the woods, where you'll have another intersection (you'll see signs for the "old track loop") don't go that way, stay right to stay on Morning Choice. You'll daylight into the field of Belmont again, and then come back into the woods. When you come back in the woods there will be another intersection. Stay right to stay on Morning Choice (to the left is the Connector Trail to Ridge Trail). From this point, you'll finish down a rooty hill and end up at a 4-way interchange where Morning Choice, Waterbars, and the start and end of the Rockburn Loop all intersect.
