At a large steel bridge, turn right to cross Hunter Brook. Continue on the green trail, pass a kiosk, and turn left at the first trail junction. The trail loops through the wetlands and turns right at the fence of the Southern New York Beagle Club at 1.2 miles. Continuing along the loop, the green trail passes stone walls in the upland forest. The green trail crosses a big trench and heads through an area with deep gullies. It descend steeply and then follows Hunter Brook. At 2.1 miles, it ends at the bridge mentioned earlier.
