Wrong location is right! This is not near Franklin NY but in the Finger Lakes region, near Watkins Glen.
Thanks, Shelby, for saving my Sunday.

Could not find the trailhead. I'm 100% sure that the directions lead you to the wrong place. There is not trailhead within 3/4 mile of the marker. Waste of my Sunday afternoon. If someone finds the location please correct it to prevent similar situations.

Very well maintained up hill by less than 2% grade heading south from Watkins Glen mostly shaded through Montour Falls. Not Buggy even by the canal. Park behind the school and head south - coming back will be a breeze!
