This is the beginning to the Bagley Seam Trail, accessed from the Wildside Trail.

The seam can be difficult to located, especially in fall when there are many leaves on the ground. About half way down the trail you will come to a fallen tree and have to cross its stump. At the stump look to your right and you will see the Bagley Seam.
