Skip it. Nothing to justify taking this 'trail' that is not much more than a game trail that ends after about a quarter mile and one is then left to bushwack...which would be okay if there was something truly worthwhile to get to...but there is no reason for doing so. Much better vistas can be found from the highways and farm roads, not to mention other trails in RRSP. If you do go, from the parking just off 86, the road to the left is private - all you will get from taking it is a very short out-n-back. The 'trail' is to the right and is only passable for about a quarter mile before disappearing into brush - and we went in December. I can't imagine bothering to hack through this in the spring/summer. Would have given it 0 stars if that was possible.
