Getting to the trail requires driving 12 miles of unpaved roads. When I got there, the area was very pretty, but I could barely find the trail, so I had to rely on using the GPS to guide me. And despite that the GPS was telling me that I was on the right path, many times there were no signs of the trail and I had to navigate around bushes and knee-high grasses. It made the going difficult. By the time I figured I had a hour left before reaching the summit, the GPS on my device quit. I couldn’t get it back. That was when I had to call quits and make my way down back. Challenges of steep terrains are what I expected when I came here instead of having to “bushwhack” due to poor or no trail markings.
