“A short wooded downhill to the pond.”— Steve Creech
An uphill run of Lady Slipper starts at its junction with the Pond Trail across from the bridge on the eastern side of Pandapas pond.
This is a shared trail with mountain bikers and horses. Heads up for mountain bikers speeding downhill from north to south. When encountering a horse, it is proper etiquette to step off the trail to the downhill side and stop until the horse has passed. Also, be sure to wear bright colors during hunting season (October 1st through the first week of January). It is illegal to hunt in the Pandapas Pond Day Use Area (the area surrounding the pond), but best to err on the side of caution. And be friendly; say "hi" to other folks out enjoying the forest!
