Heading North, the white trail starts on Flood Bridge Rd and heads up the red farm house driveway. At the gate it merges with the Yellow trail for a brief moment until you reach the parking lot. From the parking lot it continues on a grassy mowed path with the blue trail. Keep your eyes open - during the summer there are black raspberries in this area.
The white trail eventually separates itself after crossing the red trail and continues out to East Hill Road. On the other side of the road, it continues to Transylvania Rd.
