We took an unplanned detour off the highway to take the hike, mistake! hint - prepare, know the route, and don't rely on your smartphone's navigation app to get in and out. We didn't realize how far in it was. Actually, we passed it by and never found the trailhead. There is no sign for the trailhead, at least not off SRR 362 that we could find. Warning - FSR 362 is remote and we lost our connection Google Maps. It was no problem getting there, but there are a few forks in the road on the teturn trip and we git lost for 2 hours until a we ran into a nice guy 100 miles from nowhere who was there to do mining. With instructions where not to turn we made it out safe, running on fumes. When I got home I checked GPS from a photo and realized thay we had at one point made it to the trail but didn't know it since it wasn't posted. Maybe we missed the trailhead sign. If someone has a photo please post it. Perhaps it can spare others.
