This is a 3.4 mile ride (one way) with a beginner difficulty level.
After crossing Osgood River, go straight as the spur bends northeast along Hays Brook. Heavy forest, so be careful of fallen branches.
The trailhead is located at the Hays Brook Assembly Area. This is 3.7 miles north from the junction of NYS Rt. 30 & NYS Rt. 86 at Paul Smiths, a dirt road marked by a DEC Sign. Drive .4 mile until reaching a state gate on the left, where there is a parking area.
