Trailhead: N 40 41.86', W 77 42.79'. Loop trail. Head SW past several hunting camps. Lingle Valley Trail really starts in the "backyard" of the second camp. You cross several small streams, but in rainy weather expect to get wet feet. The Lingle Valley part of the trail could use better marking, but reasonable terrain-reading skills will get you to Chestnut Spring Trail. About 1.5 miles from the trailhead. Follow that a few hundred feet west to where another trail intersects. I don't remember a marker, but the trail itself was easy to spot (heads north over a slight knob). This trail leads to Brush Ridge Trail, heading northeast around Otter Gap. After about 2 miles you reach the intersection of three trails - Brush Ridge, New Otter Gap, and Indian. Take Indian Trail southwest to the trailhead.
