Not much of a "trail" as it is the side of an apple orchard, perhaps I didn't go far enough. Plenty of ticks with the long grass. We did see two deer though! So that was a plus.
The trail doesn't have a "main parking area" or start really. You have to pick the trail up on the side of the road - look for the yellow triangles on north side road!
We followed the driving directions but they do not go to the Midstate Trail. You can pick it up off of Northside Rd. Or Carrol Hill Rd.
