Very nice hike along a well defined, easy to follow, rocky trail that has a steady incline all the way to the fence gate. This first portion of the trail makes for a nice workout trail. Once past the gate (see pictures), make sure to turn left and follow the small footpath to continue up to the ruins. The path gets a little more difficult to follow at this point, but not bad. There are a few cairns to help with direction, and the app helps too. Long pants and sturdy shoes are probably a good idea on this portion of the trail. Of course, once you reach the ruins, please be respectful of the fact that this is a fragile and irreplaceable piece of history. The last piece of advice is to make sure to bring a capable vehicle with appropriate tires if planning to drive to this trailhead.
