September 1, 2013- The directions to this trail say to turn onto Dutch Creek Rd. All along the way are private property and No trespassing signs. We continued up the road until we saw a sign that said it was a private road and not a thru way to forest land. The sign said their was no turn around and there that there was a locked gate and a key would need to be aquired from the house at 511 Dutch Creek Rd. At around 10am, the gate to the home was open, but I did not see anyone outside, and did not want to bother people on a holiday weekend. A dog was watching us and seemed friendly enough and content on just watching us turn around. Very disappointed to drive 45 miles one way to have no access.
