The trail is obvious to follow down to Mile Marker 54.10. Camp Glenwood (Glenwood Dad’s Club Organization Camp) is on the trail.
The wider road will continue for a while past the camp. Go right when a smaller trail appears.
There is one crossing of a use trail between the above junction and mile marker 54.10. Signs are posted to make it clear which way to go.
Be sure to go through the crossing.
