“This is a nice trail through a forest with very little running traffic. Enjoy nice rest spots at two lakes along the way.”— John Maurizi
The first mile is relatively flat as it passes through a forest along a fern-lined trail. After this mile, the trail makes a sharp right at a place that appears to show the trail going straight. The trail straight ahead is the Boy Scout Camp Trail marked with green discs. After a little distance, the trail switchbacks across a stream and then begins a steep climb for a short distance.
After the trail levels out, you'll approach the first lake on the right: Hidden Lake. Soon after that, you'll come to John Allen Pond, which is very scenic and worth spending time at. At the southern end of the pond, you'll reach Sunken Mine Road. Turn right on the road and follow it for about a quarter-mile. Watch for the Three Lakes Trail to resume on the left side of the road. Turn off the road on the left and follow the trail for another mile until you reach the south trailhead.
