*Visitor comment: On 11/11/12 Rich writes “The Trails are not very well marked, after spending a few years in Europe and hiking their trails we need to come up with a better system. we went out hoping to do a nice loop, but we had to back track a few times because of no easy directions. Other than that it was a nice walk, just wish they would have a few bridges across the stream.”

Directions/Location: Cemetery Road, Felts Mills. From Watertown take Route 3 toward Black River, travel through Black River until you reach Felts Mills and look for the Cemetery Road on the right. Watch for the trail head and sign on the left a short distance down the Cemetery Road.
