Start this hike at the Clay Run Hiking trail head near the McCollum camping area entrance. The trail head is about 35 yards along the road from the parking area toward the overlook. The trail is a gated service road. You walk on this road all the way to waypoint #1. (If the front gate is closed/locked, not to worry. That just means you get to spend a little more time outside with nature. You can walk the roadway or take the roadside trail. About an extra 1.4 miles each way.)
Suggested waypoint #1 N39 38.406 W079 48.310
Suggested waypoint #2 N39 38.826 W079 48.454 (Take a rest here and maybe add to the project)
Suggested waypoint #3 N39 38.877 W079 48.612
If you follow these suggested waypoints, (and start from the suggested parking area) the hike is about 1.5 miles one way.
