Parked across from trail entrance at brook path lot. It was raining in the morning so everything was very slippery. I do not suggest this trail on a rainy day or within 2 days of rain really. We went up big rick cave trail to view the cases which were awesome BuT the trail up old Paugus trail was treacherous due to non existent trail markings. We were rewarded for our rough hike through those woods with beautiful peaks at the top of Paugus. These peaks continued along the Lawrence trail. Coming down Lawrence to cabin trail was a good move, well marked others than one miss of a sign we were at kelly trail junction and had to turn back to find the cabin trail. If you don’t want to see the caves which were awesome you would find an easier trip up and back using cabin to Lawrence only
