Trailhead is on the north side of Pond Rd, between the intersections of Douglas Rd & Pittsford-Mendon Rd. The parking area is small with a Posted Brown Wooden sign "Horse Trailer Parking" or something similar. This is a nice run with a lot of elevation changes, some of the hills are steep and in wet conditions deep lugged trail shoes are recommended. Pay close attention to the green markers as many have gotten lost on this run/hike.

A bit of a challenge in some spots but a nice hike. Many deer sightings along the way today.

Good trail, well marked with some nice meadow views. Occasionally you walk near the road but that's only for a few hundred yards. The trails had some washout down the center but after all the rain we had in the spring it's to be expected. Bugs weren't bad and saw a bunch of people throughout.
