From the Pie Tranor field parking lot, start at trail head due east towards the sign for Fawn shelter and follow the red blazes. Follow until you reach S. Ridge Rd. and walk along until you see the white blazes. Follow along the wider portion of that trail, then follow the black to orange/red.
There were a lot of hikers trying to burn off Thanksgiving dinner. It was still a nice hike.
Almost sure we did it wrong, but we got back to the car okay.
I've hiked this loop off and on with PAL Meetup group since 2010. I've also did several private hikes. I love hiking the loop, due to the mixed terrain. you do share the trail with many bikers, especially on a great weather day. I don't hike alone because I'm never really sure of the blazes.
