Summary: Cross June Road and enter the woods.
Hang a left and follow the trial uphill, parallel to June Road. You’ll see the left turn for the first 1-2 car street parking on Bloomer Rd.
Continue away from Bloomer Road.
At about a quarter mile, you’ll come to the intersection. Take a left.
At the fork, take the left path.
At the intersection, make a right and head south. (If you went left, you would hit the other parking area on Bloomer Rd. Straight makes and out-and-back.) In a few minutes, you’ll come to a meadow. It can be hard to find the trail from here on out, especially when everything is grown up in summer.
You’ll come to a fork. Make a right to start heading north again (if you turn left, you’ll hit the school bus garage parking area).
At the 4-way intersection, turn left and head straight. You’ll cross the cleared land for the phone lines. Then its just a short distance back to June Road and the track lot.
