This trail is 2 miles long (one way) and has a beginner level of difficulty.
Take a truck trail north for .6 miles to a bridge over the Osgood River. After crossing bridge, there is an older road on right, where a rider can continue east for 1.4 miles to Grass Pond.
This scenic pond has 2 lean-tos, but most people think the one on the east shore is nicer.
Find the trailhead by turning north at the junction of NYS Rt. 30 & NYS Rt. 86 at Paul Smiths. After 3.7 miles there is a dirt road marked with a DEC Sign for Hays Brook Assembly Area. At the .4 mile mark there is a state gate, park on left.
