The crash site can be found around 1600 feet. There is a lot of wildlife on this hike including lizards, snakes, crows and hawks. Bring plenty of water during the summer months.

I really wanted to try this trail but I couldn't figure out how to get there. There are tons of "No Trespassing" signs every 50 feet all around that made it pretty hard to pretend you didn't see them. Perhaps people just go anyway but it made me uncomfortable. If anyone has info about that I would be interested.
