7/06/04.  Near the intersection of Route 653 and Reinhardt Road there are a number of abandoned buildings in the preserve.  I did not see any clear trails.  I walked in a triangle-shaped pattern.  Headed southeast uphill; turned right and went west back to Reinhardt Road and then downhill on the road back to the car.  It was a short trip.  Dr. Patrick L.
