Trails begin just below the Puppy Kennel on the outside curve of the paved road. The various trails are marked with three different colors. The main trail is a red blaze; alternative paths are marked with orange and a center trail is marked with yellow. The east route [lower line on map] has an orange loopback, which if taken makes about a 30 minute hike. The west route [top of map] has an orange loop extension, which is more difficult with a steep grade. Follow the red blazes for a less difficult trail. A north-south [center] yellow trail bisects the red loop. It cuts about 30 minutes off the full trail hike. FULL LOOP: 1.23 miles; allow about 1½ hours at a leisurely pace.
Wear appropriate shoes and clothing, use tick repellent spray and carry a hiking stick for safety.
If you go, please inform a staff member or one of the monks.
