The trailhead is not marked very well. We walked up the road but realized we we're not on the trail. I think the trail starts on the main road but I'm still not sure.

Pretty easy, well demarcated trail. A bit slippery with all of the leaves.

You need a 4 wheel drive car to even get to the trailhead. And it appears the trail is on private property... ??
