Note: There are two cattle guards across the trail that pose a risk to small-wheeled strollers – be prepared to lift the stroller over them (about 3 feet).
Begin the hike at the Piers Lane trailhead. Follow the trail to the Dish, then turn right to continue along the loop. The trail will come close to the Stanford Ave trailhead, then continue Southeast, towards the Dish again. When you reach the Dish again, return along the path to the Piers Lane trailhead by turning right (West) and downhill.
