“School Mountain Road spans the length of the park from south to north.”— John Maurizi
When running from the south, you have to run down Campbell Road until you see a grass pathway on the left. Turn down here and pass through a gate. The trail is marked with white discs. You'll also see blue discs that mark the path for the Fahnestock Trail. These two trails share the same path for about a quarter mile.
The trail is straightforward as it passes an old farmhouse. The trail starts to ascend more after this point, lined on either side with an old stone wall. At times, the trail leaves the overgrown road, but not for long. After 3.5 miles, you'll reach a trail junction with the Wiccopee Trail and the northern trailhead in another 0.5 miles.
There are two side trails on the left (when running north), the Hubbard Loop Trail and the East Mountain Loop Trail. You can run both or one for a nice loop run.
