i’m not rating the actual hike 1 star , i am rating the directions that this app provides. this app’s directions are completely wrong and took us to a private house 48 min away from the actual trail. a group of us were in a caravan and i was the leader. needless to say i had a very irritated group of hikers and basically ruined the day as we wasted at least 2 hours.
if anyone knows how to fix the directions for this particular trail, i would suggest it be done quickly so others won’t have a wasted day.

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... ??
