HikingPrivate property

This appears to be on private property. The last mile to the trail is lined with "private road" and "resident access only" signs. There isn't much for parking, just space on the side of the road for a couple vehicles. That said, it is a very pretty and quiet hike. The first bit is a washed out road, then there's a bit of pure trail with great views, and the last half is on an access road.

First to Review

Should not be rated “Easy.” Was a long immediate downgrade that was very rocky and washed out in sections. Had to drive down a long Private Road that had several scattered properties off of it. Parked in dirt off the road by the marked trailhead. We only walked down about the first 3/4 Miles of trail and decided to turn around.
