Less than a mile down you'll take a quick left onto Upper Jungle. This trail is will climb steeply at the beginning before flattening out into a couple of rock gardens and a little drop before spitting you out onto Girls Camp Road.

Girls Camps Road is a wide gravel road used to access some of the cottages on the property. Continue on the gravel road until you see White Dot Trail on your Right
Take White Dot Right which is a rutted out old two lane dirt road for .3 miles. Until you see a small bench and sign that reads Lower Doe on your right
Lower Doe is remote trail leading you down some rock gardens and switchback onto White Pine Rd again.

White Pine Road will be a two lane dirt road that you'll grind out until you see Middle Jungle on your left
Middle Jungle is a forested trail that will take a steep down before crossing a bridge and climbing your way out and crossing state route 613 and then returning back to the barn.
