The trail starts out on the same trail as the Ridge Trail
, continuing from the boardwalk just past the maple museum. After passing through a mature section of the sugar bush and alongside a small stand of conifers, continue straight ahead to stay on Woksis, where the Ridge Trail
branches off to the left.
You'll continue to see stands of maple trees with networks of tubing as you hike along. You'll pass by some swampy areas, sheltered areas of evergreens where deer like to bed down at night, and a variety of tree species. Keep an eye out for glacial erratics, which are large rocks that may appear out of place because they were dropped by the 2 km thick glacier that retreated from this area 11,000 years ago.
You'll pass by an active beaver pond and a boardwalk made of railroad ties will take you along the edge of a large beaver flooded area. After the railroad ties, Woksis meets up with the Pump House Loop Trail. Continue straight ahead to complete Woksis on the last half kilometer of the Pump House Loop Trail. Otherwise, turn left, crossing the footbridge over the maple pipelines to come out at the start of the Pump House Loop Trail at the Barn.
