How to Get There
From Exit 30 off I-87, follow Route 9 south toward North Hudson. Continue for 0.2 mile and turn left on Tracy Road. Continue for 1.75 miles to the trailhead on the right. The trailhead parking is down a steep dirt entrance, so take your time pulling off the road.
There is a new footbridge over Crowfoot Brook. The trail is relatively flat with a slight gain in elevation that is spread out over a long distance.
This old forest road turned foot trail climbs through a dark evergreen forest as it passes over the low shoulder of Stiles Hill, which is on the left. The trail reaches the pond and passes left of it. The trail eventually ends at private property on the north shore of Crowfoot Pond. Please respect the rights of private landowners and do not proceed farther.
