Is there a way to find out the path of files from a microSD card that is inserted into any Android phone?

Related investigation:

From here, How to specify the directory path on external memory card? , it seems like the problem was solved, using an unspecified app that pointed to the right direction. (implying a tool can exist for that purpose)

From here, How to save files to external SD card on a non-rooted Android? , it implies /storage/[UUID]/, but it wasn't clear how exactly to figure out that UUID.

I figured out a workaround.

Using the SD Card Manager app, I looked at the Info of a folder in my microSD card while its connected to my phone, and was able to see my own particular UUID in /storage/[UUID], for example, /storage/1234-5678.

I then confirmed the UUID in a separate app that asked for it, i.e.: /storage/1234-5678/my_own_folder, which was ended up being successful found and used.
