Your Keys to Adventure

  1. Start at the bulletin board. Walk past the playground and then past Crow pavilion. Follow the trail that enters the woods past Downy Woodpecker following the stone path to the right.
  2. Continue straight and you will reach a road. Carefully cross the road and turn left onto the blacktop trail. Follow the blacktop over one-half mile until you reach a large gravel parking lot.
  3. Turn left at the gravel parking lot, cross the entrance road, and head towards the opening in the split rail fence. Continue straight until you reach the observation deck.
  4. At the observation deck, turn left and follow the red trail by the Alice Frick bench.
  5. Follow the red rectangle trail for over one-half mile. There are several unofficial trails that branch off in this section, so make sure to follow the blazes.
  6. Eventually, you will come to a 4-way intersection by a split rail fence on your left. Make a 90° right turn to follow the red trail.
  7. Follow the red blazes as it meanders its way down the hill several hundred yards. At the bottom, you may be able to see a house off to the right and the trail will turn to the left. Continue following the red rectangles and you will eventually begin heading back uphill.
  8. Near the top of the hill, look for the red trail to turn left into the woods and continue following the red blazes. You will pass a large water tank and then look for the post on the right side of the trail after passing the tank.
  9. To return to your car, continue following the red rectangles all the way to the parking lot. You will pass an open field on your left and a yellow gate when you are getting close.
