If you arrive late, look for a note on Sly's Honda CRV or call him. The trail project is across the street from Little Meadow parking lot. Quick Road is one road south of Truxell Road, where Camp Manatoc is located. If you're coming from Akron-Peninsula Rd., turn left onto Quick Rd and look for Little Meadow Parking area on the left.
