From the north take 81 South to Cortland, take Rt. 11 south to route 392, take 392 to a sharp right turn to Snyder Hill Rd. This meets Carson rd on left - go right for a short distance - entrance to Cortland 9 road on left. It is fairly well marked. Take this seasonal use road for about 1.8 miles to a dead end circular parking area. Trail head is in the NE section of parking area.

Couldn’t find the main trail, once we got in a few thousand yards. Map shows it curve, there was a little trail. Heading out. Disappointed.

A little muddy of a trail after light snow the night before... Relatively easy of a trail, well marked (blue and white blaze). Lovely scenery with a great number of different trees adding to the variety!

We tried this one the last weekend in April. There were no signs or no trail markings. The entrance to what we believed was the trail was partially blocked by brush piles. We walked around it but It was too wet due to late snow melt. We probably went a mile up the road and turned back at the high point. It was quiet as a church with dense pine on one side and deciduous forest on the other.

Great hike, worth the drive. Fairly remote parking area. Great elevation changes and the hollow area is magical. The lean to is well kept as is the trail.
