User maintained trail that can be easily lost in a number of places. Great hike if you are looking for a primitive hike. Not quite bushwhacking but close to it. A few places that required using all 4's. Trail head parking is very primitive. Follow the drive to the power line on the east side of the creek and pick up a trail there. No problems for someone with experience but not a great route for a first time backpackers.
