WARNING! This trail is on PRIVATE PROPERTY and the owners are not okay with people hiking here. There is a private gate with "Keep Out" signs everywhere right at the beginning.

Locals definitely don’t want visitors. End of the trail out is just a set of stairs leading to a road. No real destination, just a nice hike.

Trail is impossible to find once gps gets you to your "location". You end up in the middle of private property with no clearly defined trailhead. Private property and keep out signs are everywhere. Locals do not want you there, not worth the drive. Choose another trail.

Keep out signs everywhere. Don't do it.

Someone out there doesn't want you to hike this trail! It was very difficult to find and even once we found it, we didn't feel comfortable proceeding because the trail looked like someone was making attempts to hide it, i.e.: putting logs and piles of wood down, placing tons of "Keep out!" signs. Save yourself the time and effort and find another trail. This one isn't worth the hassle.

Find a different hike, lake arrowhead has no shortage of beautiful trails without the hassle of walking through private property.
