The trail begins at the Hell Gate parking area and then follows the Glenwood Horse Trail
to a junction with a singletrack trail. The trail then climbs through an old forest fire area with good examples of regrowth. The open areas also allow views of the distant Devils Marbleyard. After the junction with the Belfast Trail
, the trail climbs to connect with the Appalachian Trail.
