From the roadside you will drop down and continue on a moderate descent through a mixed forest. The base of the hill will bring you to a small stream crossing which is a tributary of the Raquette River. Once across the stream you will have an easy climb as you go over a small unnamed little knob. The trail remains on top of the knob before descending into a boreal forest, where the trail narrows and becomes lined with spruce and balsam. The trail ends at the shore of the Raquette River near a lean-to and other camping locations.
From the intersection of Route 30 and Route 3 in Tupper Lake follow Route 3/30 toward Saranac Lake. Directly across the road from where Route 30 and Route 3 split is the trailhead for Trombley Clearing/Landing.
