Was not impressed by this potential hike. Found the parking area with little trouble but could not locate the actual trail. There was no signage if any type...no trail markings....plus the terrain was very rocky with lots of “prickly” undergrowth. This trail is very remote, difficult to locate and the landscape is only mildly interesting. I would not recommend this hiking option. There are too many good options available in this region to waste ones time in this less than impressive hike.

Remote area so we never saw anyone else. For us wasn’t easy to pick up trail from the parking area. Maybe just us but following cairns took some searching. Terrain was rock, sandy and grassy making it interesting. Plenty of prickers too. Pleasant enough but one and done.
