Located at 6,950 feet, this one-mile loop spans the historic north campus with exposure to some of the newest, state-of-the-art buildings at NAU. This route has delightful dips and rises as hikers begin and end their journey at The Wedge Pizza and Market, which is outside of University Union next to Starbuck. The trail starts as hikers head north, keeping an eye out for cyclists on the Pedway and passing the Lab Science and Liberal Arts buildings. At the northeast corner of the Biology building, head west through the picturesque North Quad, where the first graduating class held its ceremony in 1901. Loop up and around the 1899 restaurant before turning south on Knoles Drive. Continue south until you reach McCreary Drive, turning east in front of the Native American Cultural Center and then south on University Drive to the trailhead at The Wedge.
