There is a shoulder to park along the road right next to the trailhead, you will see a big sign saying that Griffith lake is 6.8 miles away. Lots of ups and downs on this trail, it isn't incredibly strenuous but a round trip of 13.6 miles is pretty lengthy. Lots of rocks, you follow a river for most of the beginning with a decent flow for drinking water (you should still boil it). Griffith lake is beautiful, just bring water shoes because the bottom is jagged, many sticks and rocks to step on, just be warned about the horseflies!!!! The hike back is a lot easier, quite a bit more downhill but this is a good day trip.Show more

The trail starts from the White Rocks National Recreation Area Parking Lot and is fairly easy walking. Eventually, you reach a panoramic viewpoint that looks directly at the slide. From here, you have a short descent to the base of the slide. The slide ascent starts of with a lot of route finding, since you are mostly bouldering until you get above the trees, which marks about the halfway point. From here on out, expect some tough footing on scree and some amazing views of Wallingford and the surrounding area. At about the 3/4 mark up the slide, grade gets steeper to summit, which has some breathtaking views of the green mountains and beyond.Show more
