Parked on road aside the trailhead. For the first mile or so, the trail was overgrown. Once you make the left 2nd left turn and follow that along, you will find yourself hunching down to go under a few fallen trees and dip into a empty creek bed to then go up the other side into a more open space. The trail will then start to gradually incline more. If you get to the street like I did, then you've gone too far, but if you do, you can hang a left towards the circle drive and head up the trail that heads up to the peak. There is an easy trail to get you back on course once you're up there. The route on the way back to your car is mostly all down hill from here on nice trail. When descending to the trail that takes you back to your car, it's straight down with a decent descent (no switchbacks).
