Your Keys to Adventure

  1. Take paved trail 2 heading north next to George Street. There are giant invasive grasses on the left called Common Reed (phragmites).
  2. Pass under the fir trees on your right. Pass Keystone Grist Mill interpretive sign and covered bench on your right. Pause to greet the walnut trees in the trail. Stay to the left following the arrows for trail 2.
  3. Turn right at trail 2C under the spruce trees with white blazes. Enjoy hopping over the tiny stream, touching moss, and noticing ferns. Notice the spruce cones and white quartz on the trail. Walk carefully under the giant splintered tree. Hop over the stream.
  4. Follow the trail uphill, continuing to follow the white blazes. At the crazy root triangle in the trail, notice some very large litter in the woods.
  5. Continue uphill on trail 2C, over wooden bridges.
  6. Stay straight, following the white blazes. Continue on the wide trail through the loblolly pine trees (3 needles in bundles).
  7. Turn left on 2A, heading downhill. Follow 2A straight at the powerline intersection. Look for the gigantic tulip tree on the right. Right after the big tree is a narrow shortcut trail on the left and the rubbing post!
  8. Head downhill on the shortcut trail. Lake Williams will be on your right. At the bottom of the shortcut trail, turn left to keep the lake on your right. Pass a bench on your left. Stay straight to follow the lake back to the parking area on trail 2.
