Near the gardens, there are no red blazes. If you walk East between the stone wall and the gardens it will lead you to where the red blazes pick back up. Just past the gardens the trail enters the woods. This entrance can be hard to find. Continue walking East beyond the gardens. As the woodsbegin to jut out in front of you, head towards them. It might be helpful to review the satellite imagery.
