Start at the northern side of the parking area and walk over a wooden bridge to get on Lakeside Trail, near some picnic tables and old oak trees
Follow the signs for Lakeside Trail – make sure the lake always stays on your right as you are walking slightly north
At the tree with multiple trunks that looks like a "V", stay to the right
Look for a pavilion up in the wooded area to the left and continue on the trail in front of you
Keep on the trail in this area – poison ivy and other critters would like to get you!
Look for a brown post - "25" Lakeside Trail - with some blue flagging on it and stay straight
Make your way through some mud and over a black, cylindrical culvert in the trail - look for blue flagging to your right
You will come to a fork in the trail just before the open field; stay to the left and look along the trail line to your left for the observation point
