This trail connects the Liberty Dam trail and the Oakland Rd trail. You can also just take a loop onto the road and go back to the trailhead at Wards Chapel Rd. Some nice scenery including an abandoned water wheel are along the way

You have to walk a little up a private drive, but as the other post said- across the bridge on the left is the start of the trail. If you walk and can see the private house you've gone too far.
Also, if you take the split to the right the trail is not very well marked so you will need this app to figure out where you are going.
Other than that it was a great hike and there was a nice little waterfall and old wheel house where the stream and the reservoir meet on the top side of the hike.

Do you have to go on someone's private driveway to go on this trail? That's ridiculous. I rather not take my chances here....

This starts on a PRIVATE DRIVE.
From wards chapel, don't go on the gate 1 trail, follow private drive and once across the wooden bridge, turn LEFT in front of large evergreen
