From the back, left-hand corner of the parking lot, get onto Boulder Loop Trail which is also a snowmobile trail at the beginning and is signed as "Trail E" at the parking lot. The trail will almost immediately cross two wooden bridges and then turn right where a woods road continues straight.
Boulder Loop Trail climbs easily at first then gets steeper as it winds amongst ledges and boulders. After a final steep pitch, you'll reach semi-open ledges with views and much easier inclines. After a total of 1.6 miles on Boulder Loop Trail, you'll reach the summit of Mount Major.
