I thought this trail was pretty challenging and difficult to find. The directions just take you to a residential area. From there you have to find an entrance to Desert Classic trail and then follow Desert Classic to Secret Trail and then you will see an unmarked trail. It is a great challenging hike and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely go back to hike it again.
Great little night hike with some great wildlife in the area. Easy trail to follow even at night, absolutely one of the best marked trails in the area.
