A nice hike through portions of the El Dorado National Forest. Parking is available at the day use lot of the Dru Barner campground for $3. The trail departs south from the campground information kiosk. To get there, if you take a left turn at the sign for Dru Barner (a few hundred yards before the turn for Bottle Hill Road) you will have paved USFS access roads instead of a rutted dirt road. The trail is well marked with USFS markers.
