From the parking area, follow Idle Road to the Darlington Trail at Lambs Gap. Walk the ridge west along the Darlington Trail to Millers Gap Road. The hike follows Millers Gap Road downhill to the north, where it picks up a game-lands road and footpath that leads back to the car. The hike makes a loop between Lambs Gap and Millers Gap on Blue Mountain west of Harrisburg. It uses the Darlington Trail across the ridgetop and a game-land trail below. Two sections of dirt road connect the two. You can park at any one of four parking areas that the route passes by, but my experience suggests that the hike walks best in a clockwise direction beginning from the parking area on Idle Road below Lambs Gap.
