Get a quick escape from the city on this 2.8 mile loop.

From the Kean Avenue parking lot, head west on the Sag Valley Trail for a great afterwork run or hike. After a half mile, head right at the T intersection and descend down to the stream. Continue on the Sag Valley Trail and cross over Kean Avenue to finish the loop at the parking lot.
