The east/west portion of this trail (on the southern end) is an abandoned county road. The northern loop trail is a typical well-cut HHC trail that in combination with the road nets about 3 miles. The trail leaves the parking area (behind the gate) to your left; the county road is to your right. The county road has several offshoots on it that get a little confusing on the return, as it was not blazed. Stay on the largest path and use the Hiking Project mobile app to help find your way.
