non-simple boundary line adjustment

I have worked through the web training courses "Introduction to Editing Parcels Using ArcGIS Desktop 10" and "Managing Parcel Data Using ArcGIS Desktop 10."  I have managed to import my coverage data into a parcel fabric using the "load a topology to a parcel fabric tool."

I am trying to do my first task, which is something that is really common in my county, but is not addressed in the training.  In this instance I have a fairly complex boundary line adjustment between two parcels owned by the same person.  I have COGO attributes for ONE of the parcels from a new survey.  The other parcel was digitized from old tax map data and has not had a modern survey.  I have figured out that I can unjoin the parcel with the modern survey and COGO in the new lines.  Now, how do I edit the other parcel--which lacks a modern survey-- in order to follow the new boundary line of the other parcel?  Is there a trace tool?  What is the best way to accomplish this?

Thank you.
