This route passes through open meadows, dense pine forest, and past two historic cemeteries. The majority of the first half of this route is immersed in a wide open overgrown meadow where, in some spots, corn and rye grass are planted to attract wildlife. From the small sand and gravel parking area, you will see a modest historic cemetery in a field to your right (west) as you’re facing away from the road. Pass around a red metal gate, walking a short distance on a dirt road into a field, where you’ll see the check-in station, a concrete-block building painted red. A brown signboard with a small trail map attached is to your right. Turn left (south) onto a gravel access road that begins in a meadow and continues into the woods.
