This trail is located inside the campground out in a back corner. As a routine Burney camper I have been down this trail many times. Though I can not claim to have ever been down there in the daylight. It is often that, as a group of kids, would grab a flashlight and hike down. The trail is a wide dirt road that is pretty short and the cemetery is easy to get to. The cemetery itself is a bit over grown and contains some broken headstones but overall it just adds to the feeling of the area. I definitely suggest doing this hike, while it lacks a challenge the cemetery itself is very neat. While I only went at night time, most common time at 1am, I can not claim what type of traffic it sees.
