Park in the first day use lot you come across on your right side. Cost is $5 to enter the park. The trail map is pretty handy. Plenty of butterflies, grasshoppers, beetles, and lizards on this hike. Right now the yucca blooms are impressive.

These are many trails that loop around within "Caspers Wilderness Park" off the Ortega HWY. Google their website for a map of all these trails (or see link below). All are located within the campground, I think day use access is free. Great hiking, lots of horses and some mountain biking.
