Access the trail from the park office. The trail starts as a grassy smooth track to your immediate right as you enter the woods near Route 18 and the park entrance. The trail climbs and winds its way to a stretch of pine trees that cover the trail with soft needles. At the end of the trail you'll intersect with the Mineral Springs Loop Trail
. Heading right takes you over Heritage Trail
and the waterfall. Left takes you downhill back to the park office.
