From the parking area hikers can reach the FLT via a blue blazed spur trail or a yellow blazed trail maintained by SUNY Cortland. The SUNY trail is easier going, while the spur trail takes hikers closer to the area streams.
Once at the FLT hikers can hike Northerly for forest and field walks or Southerly through some nice stands of red pines, or a combination of both directions to round out our regular hike duration.

Logan Hill Nature Preserve
Meet-up: parking lot for Candor Junior/Senior High School
Park at the entrance to the parking lot nearest Main Street, right in front of the Post Office.
The hike goes from this parking lot across Main Street to Water Street, which becomes Logan Hill Road. It is about 0.6 miles from the parking lot to the first trailhead. Logan Hill Road makes a 90 degree turn to the right (west) at the top of the hill, and the trailhead is about 200 feet on the right after that turn.
The main trail is the yellow trail. Staying on the yellow trail makes the hike 4.4 miles out and back to the parking lot. There is a blue trail short cut that makes the hike 0.75 miles shorter.
