Parked at the end of Ernie's road but missed the turn off about 50 yards in to go left. Not sure if there was a more marked trail that way but we bushwhacked around looking for the rim/edge and did not find a grand vista. There is definitely no trail in the location marked on the map here (we had a GPS and crossed the "red trail line" on the map several times near the saddle but did not come across anything. HikeAZ has it right: "Follow this "trail" as long as you can as it quickly disappears near a fence/property line." Just be aware. It's still a nice area though.

The trailhead isn’t not marked and parking is weird. We went in October and the leaves were absolutely beautiful at this time of year.

ABOUT THE TRAIL
Moderate 3.8 mile there and back trail. A lot of sandy uphill (and downhill going back) surrounded by lots of tall pine trees. Dry creek this time of year (June) suggests that this would be a great spring hike; lots of vegetation growing where the water would be. This ap seems to be a bit off with the hike pathway- we were on it and then we weren't and then we were again. It's extremely easy to follow though.

ABOUT THE VIEW
Trees, sand/rocks, squirrels, birds, butterflies. Pleasant. Great for hiking in the summer if you live in the hotter part of the state.

STUFF TO KNOW
Finding the trailhead is funny because you literally feel like you are parking in a neighborhood (because you are). The street leading up to the trailhead dead ends at the small gate to walk through to start the hike. No restrooms, clearly.

We missed the first left turn so did a nice loop but the wrong one. Watch out for it.
