Paid $15 for day use parking in the Pirate Cove. Looks like you could park for free up the road a little way at the official trailhead. Hike starts Next to road for 1st part, then train track, then dirt road. No shade ( which was ok for us). Looks like a fun spot for dirt bikes. Kids enjoyed swimming in the river afterwards. Would we hike it again? No - probably not - too many other trails to explore.
