Following the dirt access road into the property you will soon come to a trail on the right. Follow this trail, it will you to Deer Pond. The white blazed trail crosses a small stream then will turn to the left back onto the access road. Look for the white blazes on the right. Turning right, follow the trail as it winds up and down small hills first through a grove of mountain laurel, then through an area of small boulders before reaching the back corner of the property. The trail sharply turns to the left traversing through the woods and scattered boulders back to the access road. Turning right you will follow the access road back to the entrance.
