Take Seventh to Springhill (after crossing 90). Then turn right on Toohey. Turn right onto Walker Road. This road dead ends at trailhead (and changes name along the way).

Loved it! Wild flowers everywhere, lots of shade from trees. Quite a few creek crossings, so a hiking pole helps.

Direction to trailhead are wrong on this site though. To get there, take seventh to Springhill (after crossing 90). Then turn right on Toohey. Turn right onto Walker Road. This road dead ends at trailhead.( changes name along the way).

Didn't see that last review. The street to get to this trail is privately owned.

Saddle Mountain Jeep Rd Trail does not exist! Map and directions need to be updated. The road is private or has been removed but either way no way of getting to it. Post some real directions so no one else wastes their time trying to find a trail that's not accessible

Love this hike, beautiful in the fall as the colors change. Near the creek and dog friendly. A bit crowded but a great trail overall.
