“This trail spans the Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park from east to west.”— John Maurizi
The trail descends a ridge and after about 3.5 miles you reach a trail junction with the Perkins Trail. The Perkins Trail is marked with yellow discs and shares the same path with the Fahnestock Trail for about .5 miles. At that point the trails separate and the Fahnestock Trail travels along Clove Creek Pond. After passing the pond, the trail takes a turn right and you'll pass the Clove Creek Trail on the left. Continue straight until you reach the Charcoal Burners Trail marked with red discs. The two trail again share the same path until you pass Beaver Pond. Fahnestock breaks off to the left and follow until the trail ends on the Appalachian Trail.
If taking this trail east to west, you have to park on Route 301 south of Canopus Lake and follow the Appalachian Trail to a steep staircase. You'll see a large cairn on the left with blue spray paint. Turn left here onto the Fahnestock Trail.
