The trail is perfect for those who doesn't like intense climbing uphill. Only the first mile is tough, and the rest if a very pleasant walk to the AMC hut, Z-cliff or Zealand trail.
We parked and started from Wiley House Station Rd. There is plenty of parking space.

Went here a few years back with Camp Wildwood on a one night backpacking trip. Ethan pond is a beautiful and peaceful spot. Sitting there and watching the sunset over the pond is one of my all time favorite camping experiences. If you are staying overnight there is a few tent platforms near the pond.

We started at the Zealand Falls hut and were headed to Wiley Station House Road. The first 4 - 5 miles was flat, with very slight uphills. The last several miles were downhill, with some rocks. Overall the trail was very tame compared to sections of the Greenleaf, Twinway and Garfield Ridge trails.
