First of all, their is no trailhead marker. It might have burned down in 2016. After one mile on FR 384, look for the pullout with a sign saying clean your boots. The trail starts just to the right of that.

We hiked 4.1 miles in and really enjoyed the hike. A lot of effort has gone into clearing fallen logs and clearing the trail. We went past the 3.7mi turn around point because the effects of the forest fire had decreased, the pines were green again, and the narrowing canyon was beautiful. Wear shoes that can get wet and bring hiking poles, especially as you climb and will be on loose terrain after 3.7 miles.
