“The complete Northside Loop at the South Campus Trails.”— Stephen Bond
This is the beginning of the Junk Yard Trail. After passing the old barn and climbing the hill up into the pines, follow the Tuffguy sign to begin the Velvet Ditch Trail. Velvet Ditch will take you back to the trail intersection between the two ponds. Follow the singletrack on the north side of the fire road to get back to the second half of the Golden Bush Trail.
Complete the loop by following Golden Bush back to the Railbed.
