“A shorter trail passing the remnants of the old Snead Farm.”— Larry W. Brown
Continue on the left fork for around one-tenth of a mile through an apple orchard arriving at a second fork with the Pumphouse Access Trail; keep to the right. The Snead house has been torn down, but the barn is in fairly good condition and marks the property for the homesite, around two-thirds of a mile from Skyline Drive.
The road goes beyond the barn to the site of the Snead house on the right, where the remains of a wall and some steps can be seen.
From the homesite, continue along the Snead Farm Loop Trail for another two-thirds of a mile until its conclusion at the Dickey Ridge Trail.
