“The premium Danby State Forest route.”— Jonathan Barton
In general, trail is singletrack, with a few small creek crossings.
The trail is relatively easy to follow (look for the orange blazes). Just keep an eye open to not wander off to the Finger Lakes Trail. You'll find hikers, runners, and dog walkers most times of year, so stay alert. There is roadside parking for 3+ cars right by the indicated trail start.
