The Ole Rail Bed leads from the Wallace Falls State Park parking lot to the DNR road leading to the lake. Take the hiking trail until the hikers-only trial splits off to the right at about .4 miles. Continue up the former logging rail bed and single track and cross an older clear cut at 1.8 miles on single track. The trail meets the DNF road at 2.3 miles.
