Travel south/west on Westernport Road, passing Pine Swamp. From there, keep a sharp eye out for the turns in the road, and for any pull off. Watch for a yellow gate on the right, and a pull off on the left about a mile and a half from Pine Swamp. It's not marked with anything other than that.

Evy, or anyone else who is searching for this location, it is somewhat obscure to find. I think I tried every wrong direction before finding this beautiful trail. The basic idea is to travel south/west on Westernport Road, passing Pine Swamp. From there, keep a sharp eye out for the turns in the road, and for any pull off. Watch for a yellow gate on the right, and a pull off on the left about a mile and a half from Pine Swamp. It's not marked with anything other than that.
