simplified map showing possible confusing sections:
assuming a counter clockwise traverse of trail ---
1) don't miss the trail marker indicating hard left on west (right) side of park road;
2) at cabins go south (right) on cabin road for about 20' and then hard left into woods;
3) at north end of k.p. road guard rail go left into the field towards boathouse and up park road to nature center where at its far side the trail commenses.
