Hike Route Description:

From the parking area, walk on the Finger Lakes Trail in a generally Southwesterly direction This is an  ‘out and back” hike.

The initial part of the trail will feature a small water-crossing, some areas with root and mud hazards that may require careful navigation (wet roots, rocks, etc ).

A short climb up a small hill will soon find you walking through small meadows, stands of large pines, etc that make for a pleasing walking environment. A quick road walk as the FLT jogs Southwesterly on Boylan RD, and you’re once again travelling through forests and meadows on what appears in places to have been former logging roads.
