Love this hike, but not sure why it is listed as easy. There is a “trail” to it now, but only because it is getting a lot of traffic since it was published in some articles. You really have to keep your eyes open for the little plastic markers in the trees. If you start out on the road you will cross the creek seven times (one way) but if you stay to the left where the old pipeline goes you cut out one crossing. You also will have to cross several boulder fields where rock slides have come down. Depending on the time of year you go, the creek crossings can be down right dangerous. We’ve gone several times and have had to turn back because of high water before. The first time we made it there were sections of the creek that we were waist high. If you’re planning to go I recommend going in fall or winter when the water is low. It is doable as a day hike but more fun as an overnight trip. Don’t litter and destroy the buildings and/or the old furniture.
