“A moderately rocky trail with a well-paced ascent up a ridge before descending into the historic Hog Pen crag.”— Rory Nugent
Follow the red blazes down the wide gravel trail. Make a left after the stream (less than 0.25 miles), and follow it up and into the woods. The red blazes are relatively easy to follow.
The trail will come in contact with the Curtis Trail (Red/White), Hillcrest Trail (Blue), Old Beach Glen Trail (Orange), Muffy's Loop (Purple), Ridge-Mudhole Trail (Yellow), and Loren's Loop (Pink). The trail ends by descending into the Hog Pen which is a notable rocky crag with a wood sign attached to a tree with the name "Hog Pen". From here, you can continue via Loren's Loop (Pink).
