Twice now I have tried to find this trail I have asked those working around the cog Railroad station and no one seems to know where this trail is located. It would be most helpful if this could identified a little better on the map.

Love the trail. It's not as easy as expected. The trail has several places where it fades out. It's easy to not make it to the end. Talk to the camp host at Barr before heading back in for trail advice.
