This is not a hiking trail but rather a trail ride path that spends a significant portion on dirt roads. The trailhead appears to be a private trail ride business located several miles down a hilly single lane dirt road.

I followed the trail map on this app to see where it would take me and, after turning off the main dirt road and wading a creek, it led me across the edge of a field to a gate with purple marking tape, which indicates no trespassing. I’m guessing those paying for trail rides can use the trail but otherwise you are limited to walking down a dirt road to the gate and back again.

It appears that the Indy Big Creek Trail and Gardside and Razorhollow Trail, which start at the same trailhead are both recorded trail rides and not hiking trails open to the public.
