Your Keys to Adventure

  1. Find the canopy table on the edge of the parking lot. Start following the blue rectangle trail. At the T intersection with a number 4 post, turn left.
  2. Continue following the blue rectangles until you come to an intersection with the blue triangle trail on your left. Keep left here and follow it until you reach a paved road marked M5. Turn right here and watch for cars.
  3. There will be a turn off on your left for a gravel lot. Continue straight past the 3 large rocks in the middle of the road. Carefully cross the stream ford just beyond the rocks. Next, turn left at the intersection with M2.
  4. After 30 yards, a trail will be on your right labeled 3c and purple rectangles. Turn right here. Follow the purple rectangles uphill. Eventually, the trail will take a sharp right hand turn up the hill.
  5. Soon, the trail will flatten out and you will come to a spot where the trail turns 90 degrees to the left with a trail marker number 3 on your right. Turn left here.
  6. Head down the hill until you reach a field with a wooden post. The post can be found here.
  7. To return to your car, turn left on the mowed path and follow it with the woods on your left. Continue down the hill and keep left when you reach the Y intersection with a gravel maintenance road.
  8. Follow the maintenance road until you reach the trail on your right for M5 to cross the stream. Turn right and follow the trail back past the rocks, the parking lot and then turn left on the blue trail you came down before. Follow the trail the same way you did when you began the hike back to the parking lot.
