Follow McKenzie Road to a T-junction, and turn left onto the North Ridge Loop trail. After half a mile pass an overlook with a bench. Follow the winding North Ridge Loop downhill, passing the "to spring lot" sign intersection.

At the trail junction triangle where two large trees stand, veer left toward the Pogue, and a welcoming bench. Circle the Pogue and retrace your steps back up the path to the intersection with the two large trees.

Turn left uphill back onto the North Ridge Loop, and take a left onto McKenzie Road at the signpost. After just a few yards, turn right onto the Prosper Trail, descending steeply through the woods.

Stay on Prosper Trail, bearing right towards the short boardwalk that returns you to the parking area.
