The trail begins by going up an old ski slope to the top of Marble Mountain. It branches off to the right just past the top of Marble Mountain and heads up to Lookout Mountain. After about a mile and a half there is a large cairn marking the separation of trails. Follow the sign at the cairn to the right and head to the top of Esther Mountain. The trails are marked in some areas but are very clearly defined. Great views of Whiteface Mountain along the way up.
