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 trails over rolling hills until you reach the Dish (it is visible for most of the hike). Turn back the way you came, enjoying the downhill trek on your way back.
