I recommend removing this from All Trails. The surrounding community really does not seem to want visitors. Not only is this communicated with numerous signs, but it also has barbed wire on top of the continuous chain-link fence.

trail Closed. big fence " private property" " warning". you find your way in and... hike is very short going down. Going up not very hard either. best thing about this trail was the drive. Trail itself very easy, and short.

This is an awesome hike!!! It is quite steep, but it is so worth it!! We took our 5 year old and he handled it just fine. The trail was easy to find and I was amazed by how clean it was, usually popular places like these have some kind of trash or graffiti, but there was nothing, just beauty. Highly recommend.

This trail was closed down March 2014. There was a giant fence up. They are redoing piping under the trail. Pretty steep trail. If you find the small opening between where two fences meet, you can easily get past the fence and follow the trail/ road. Watch out for small snakes!!!
