Lower terminus starts at Bailey Gap Road just inside the state forest boundary. White blazes are used until the trail intersects the Stone Mountain Trail. After that red blazes are used. Without the blazes, the trail up the mountain side is difficult to follow. There is little in the way of a footpath. It is frequently rocky and steep. Once on the summit of Stone Mountain, the footpath is very evident. The trail continues to its upper terminus on Rag Hollow Road. The trail on the summit is relatively flat and easy going.

Trailhead: N 40 41.86', W 77 42.79'. Loop trail. Head SW past several hunting camps. Lingle Valley Trail really starts in the "backyard" of the second camp. You cross several small streams, but in rainy weather expect to get wet feet. The Lingle Valley part of the trail could use better marking, but reasonable terrain-reading skills will get you to Chestnut Spring Trail. About 1.5 miles from the trailhead. Follow that a few hundred feet west to where another trail intersects. I don't remember a marker, but the trail itself was easy to spot (heads north over a slight knob). This trail leads to Brush Ridge Trail, heading northeast around Otter Gap. After about 2 miles you reach the intersection of three trails - Brush Ridge, New Otter Gap, and Indian. Take Indian Trail southwest to the trailhead.
