Your best bet for finding the trailhead is to input the parking lot's coordinates (N 41° 27.553 W 078° 58.152) into your GPS. The drive to the trailhead can get pretty rough as you'll be ...

You'll also pass other scenic beauty along way, including babbling brooks and ...
... maybe even local wildlife. While you might run into some rocky and muddy terrain (be prepared to get muddy), you might be pleasantly surprised to learn the trail is predominately flat.
