Leaving Dutchman Road behind and heading southeast you quickly come across a gated fence, after passing through the gate continue southeast toward the powerlines overhead. After several turns along a stream on double track there is a signed 3-way intersection, to continue following the 40L Lake Loop you should proceed to the right or south. The left-hand option heading east takes you toward Pactola on Trail #40. After this intersection the trail continues to be easily navigable double track for some time. It follows the bottom of a canyon and is a slight but continuous uphill grade. Eventually a sweeping right-hand turn is encountered and the trees give way to a grassy clearing on your right and a view of Deerfield Cove Road. The trail will take two more shallow left-hand turns paralleling Deerfield Cove Road and then intersect another minor gravel road. Take a right onto the road heading west toward Deerfield Cove Road.
