This hike is on the hill opposite Tinker Falls and Jones Hill hang glider take off area. You have to park on the west side of Labrador Pond and look carefully for the wooden foot bridge over the ditch. If you have a GPS here are the coordinates: N42 47.460 W76 03..482 This hike is strenuous to start until you reach the "Plateau" area and then it flattens out. From there you can hike over to Heiberg Forest.

Really enjoyed the solitude and the challenge of this trail. It was overgrown and sparsely marked in a few places but my dog and I had a great time and never had trouble staying on the path (a little scratched up now though!). Glad there was a picture of the footbridge, not sure we would have found it otherwise.

Nice hike this summer afternoon. From Markham-Hollow Rd., park about 100 yards up the road from trail head in small side parking area. Wooden bridge was barely visible with the summer growth, but beyond that, trail is open and well marked. The 1st 1/2 mile is challenging, steep with multiple switch-backs, but nice change is forest as you ascend.

We picked up this trail on Markham Hollow road, the trail switch-backed up and over Labrador Hill, we traveled through a lot of interesting landscapes and ended up at Tully-Truxton Rd 3.5 miles later. Out and back made this a 7 mile hike. Was fun to do with my dogs. This trail also picks up on the other side of Markham Hollow road, looks like it goes through the Labrador pond area and picks back up again on the other side of 91. I assume it also connects with the Jones Hill look out trail, also trails to Tinker falls.

Parked just off of Tully-Truxton road at Heiberg Forest. Nice quiet hike with very little foot traffic. Nice descent onto Labrador Hollow road otherwise a fairly flat hike.
