Trail was difficult to find because no signs at all from the road. Finally had to use the map and park on side of road next to what looked like a trail. Despite being surrounded by private property, the path took us up to the trail. We ended up peeling off to the Shannon trail that took us up to the top with some great views. I recommend the trail but give yourself extra time to find it.

Awesome trail, best done early in the morning before 9 am because the whole trial would be shaded. Pooch is allowed on a leash, which you'll see many walking their pets here. The view at the starting point doesn't entice you, It's when you're midway you'll understand the beauty of this trail. It's a short trail and ends at the start of Shanon Trail. Some people end it there and turn around for those who were only looking for a easy morning stroll. But for those who were planning to exercise? continue on to Shanon Trail which you'll have to continue on to Garstin Trail and make this a loop to return to your car. This is a really cool by the way! if you do the loop in either direction, its a wonderful experience to start your morning exercise. A perfect way to start your week-end !! :)
