Shortly after clearing the guard rail along Deerfield Road you will make a right-hand turn across a small wooden bridge and then begin a gradual climb to the east. The trail will alternate north and then east again two more times, while heading east after descending the first downhill of this section you may happen upon an apparent intersection with the trail splitting north and continuing east. You will want to take a left turn here and proceed north. The terrain in this section is quite mellow, while a continual grade up or down it is not overly steep. In a number of places the trail is a bit rocky or overgrown but not technical. After a final short descent the trail will open a bit with a clearing to the left.
