This loop hike of 2.8 miles utilizes one mile of the Finger Lakes Trail / North Country Trail and 1.8 miles of dirt roads.  The hike is easy with an elevation change of just over 300 feet.  You can also visit the old circular stone pool built by the CCC in the 1930's by heading 0.1 mile south on old Finger Lakes Trail where the trail meets Baker Schoolhouse Road.  This would make your hike three miles.
