Go past the electrical tower almost towards the back of the landfill building. There are a couple of dumpsters. Behind those is where the trail actually starts. Trail is a little over grown in some areas but still easy to access and not difficult overall.

Visiting from Az and thought it was fun! Nice little water fall at the end! Poorly marked at the beginning though. You park on the street of the closed land fill and literally follow the road RIGHT alongside the old building. Do note there are a couple other trails you'll see not sure where they lead. Once you pass the building you'll see the trail marker shortly after! Last thing to note is you'll come to another sign that says trail and points left.. the creek and waterfall is RIGHT and then continue for a bit. Nice mini paradise
