Description

Follow the well-marked (yellow-blazed) trail with lots of signage at the juncture points. You'll go through an open field before heading back into the woods and an uphill section.

After about the 0.75-mile mark, you'll pass a large slab rock that is the Carrick parking lot set back off the trail to your left where you can connect to the Fred Schroeder Memorial (red-blazed) trail. As a side note, this limestone slab and area feature some geological interests (fossils and glacial scraping marks).

Continue past the guard rail blocking most of the trail from cars and follow the yellow-marked trail. At about 1.1 miles, you'll pass the Hang Glider (magenta-blazed) trail. At about the 1.75-mile mark, you'll pass a small pond. The water can sometimes obscure the trail; if that's the case, just stay to the right.

Shortly after, you'll pass a small parking lot and eventually get to a fork. Head left over the small bridge to reach the end of the trail and Long Path (green-blazed) junction.
