Nice quiet trail easily accessible from Rockville. For an alternate starting point, turn off Norbeck onto Avery Rd. There's a little parking lot labeled Lake Bernard Frank. The trail entry is at the end of the lot. You can stay straight on the path to the dam and circle the lake counter clockwise, or take the left turn off the path as you're going downhill and go clockwise (my preferred direction).
