Yellow blazed. Once you climb a classic singletrack switchback it is all downhill heading toward Trostle Pond/Northwoods, A nice climb heading toward Ziegler. Has many techy areas, dips, rocks, roots. From Ziegler the trail will take you from a hardwood forest passing by one of the oldest trees (300 yrs) in the park at its highest point just across a rock wall. The trail than starts its descent down to a classic Pa. Hemlock Forest, thru a fast field section, across a small creek over to Trostle Pond. The other option is not to cross the creek and stay on Bull Hill exit to rte 438 and take a right to connect to Orchard.
