Trail Information:
  This trail starts off nice and easy but gets tough after the first mile. Wickander trail climbs up to Campus Drive. There are two more trails on the other side of Campus Drive that conitnue up to the top of the hill ending at Oaks Drive. The distance from bottom to top is between 4 and 5 miles with a total elevation gain close to 1600 feet. The trail is always shady and cool even in the heat of the day. Several stream crossings are present.
