This is a beautiful, pristine woods walk in and out of gullies along the steep slope on the eastern bank of Hemlock Lake. You can walk a 3.5-mile loop.
Stop at the permit station on the corner of Rix Hill Road and Boat Launch Road (at the northwest corner of Hemlock Lake) to pick up a free permit before heading to this trail.
A map and trail description can be found in the guidebook "Take A Hike - Family Walks in New York's Finger Lakes Region" which is available through EMS.
A parking lot is located on the western side of Blank Road between Harder Road and Niver Road.
