This hike starts from PRIVATE land! I followed the directions from AllTrails and was excited from the other reviews but we had to turn back after confirming that there was nowhere for us to park and no marked trail head

Hiked the out and back to the two Ragged peaks. I thought the trail was well marked and well maintained, easy to follow. I wanted loop out towards the Bulkhead, that will have to happen next time

Not a very well marked trail...an odd mix of cairns, wood plaques and blazes. The problem is the frequency is very low and there has been a lot of additional "social" paths that branch from this loop. Might be easier to navigate as a bike, but trail running was a challenge due to signing issues. Great terrain! Several high angle sections really add intensity to an an objective that almost always seems to be gaining elevation! It was an adventure...

Attempted to hike this trail from the New Canada road on 11/6/16.
The trail starts off very wide as it was used for logging a few years ago. About 1/2 mile in the trail bears right, off the logging road. It is marked, but all six of us missed this and kept walking. We never made it to the top. If you get to an area on the right that was clearcut you've gone too far. People have laid branches across the logging road where it turns right, but we did not notice them as the logging road is covered with sticks and branches. Looked like a giant brush hog ran through it widening the trail for logging.
