6.4 mile loop hike. Great hike for fall colors. Optional 1 mile detour to Kay's Cottage.

From the parking lot head to the Black River Trail (blue blazes). Head toward Kay's Cottage, where after 1.5 miles, you can choose to take a quick detour out to the ruins (adds roughly 1 mile roundtrip to the hike). From here continue on the trail until the intersection of the Conifer Trail and Patriots' Path (just after crossing Pottersville Rd.). Take Patriots' Path toward Kay Environmental center (with a short walk on Pottersville Rd.) and then continue back to your car.
