Good workout trail. Beautiful at the bottom with plenty of water and huge deep pools and waterfalls. Worth a visit. Trail is steep and slippery in places due to sand, but manageable if you take your time. We measured it at about 7/10 of a mile one way and about 900 feet of elevation loss to the bottom. That, of course, means 900 feet of gain hiking back out. Figure about 30 minutes going down and an hour or more going uphill. Take your time, rest when necessary and you will find it a moderate challenge. The trailhead is at the end of the dirt road that continues when the pavement ends. Probably 3-4 miles from Hiway 18. You'll know you are there when you get to the parking area with the "Fisherman" sign next to the beginning of the trail. The dirt road dead ends at this sign, so you know you are there.
