the trail head is next to impossible to find. I have driven that road countless times, didn't even know trail was there. I think FS purposely doesn't have road marker due to EXTREME importance of keeping people out of WW drinking watershed. if you set foot on south side of trail you can be FINED. they have trail camaras and full time Ranger patrolling skyline drive looking for watershed violations.

Not EASY. Recommend hiking boots and trekking poles. Overgrown, in some spots. Other spots are really narrow, along with a steep enough slope to where if you were to slip, it would be a rough tumble. There are a few spots with a steep enough slope, mixed with some rocks, that could cause a decent tumble as well. we ran out of time. Takes about 80+ minutes to get up to the trail head. We were unable to make it out to the crash site, I'm really out of hiking shape and we expect the hike to be a lot easier. Other than that, beautiful hike. Fantastic views.

Description falls very short of explaining where the trailhead is located. Map shows trailhead which falls right into the road, however there is no parking. Just before the trailhead shown here is a rough road to the right which climbs up to a rustic camp site, if you don't have the vehicle to navigate this rough track, just park to the side here off the road. Hike up this short road and veer to the south, which is left and you will pick up the trail. Easy trail, many places overgrown, lots of huckle or mtn blueberries aloing the way. Look for a tree stump that has a carved pointed top off the trail to your right as a bearing to drop down a steep hillside to locate plane parts, there were signs of people having bush whacked parts of a trail. It was overgrown, but we did find one of the four engines and part of a wing. This was a B-17 Flying Fortress that had 10 crewmen whom all perished in 1943 February snow. Did walk trail to the point with a very nice view, but it then turned south to only to go down a steep path, not knowing what was down there, we turned around.

Never found the trailhead... although GPS said we were there. I'd try it again now that I have AllTrails installed.
