This trail has multiple entrances, but the entrance shown is behind the playground of the elementary school. Parking can be found in the gravel lot across the street from the school. Once behind the fence, look for a blaze orange arrow to point you toward the trail.
The trail is marked by more of these blaze orange arrows and orange marks on the trees. The trail crosses many other trails so be vigilant of these orange marks. Be mindful of the other park users, Murdock has a very popular disc golf course that is intertwined with the trail.
An optional grass section can be included. The trail will start to go through a field, this is another possible starting point, and you can either choose to follow the singletrack up or take the grass section which winds up on Murdock's sled run.
