Starting from the Retreat Center parking area you will enjoy an easy walk jog, or ride on this tree lined path that circles the park. Since you are away from park activities you may see or hear a variety of birds. In the spring and early summer months you will be treated to the beauty of wild flowers and the cinnamon scent of sweet pepperbush (June is best). In addition to this trail, Sesqui features a jogging loop, camping, nature trail, and lake fishing. Loop Road can also be accessed from Polo Road Park.
