Park where the backpack trail crosses Forest Road 14. You can go either direction and make a large loop via the backpack trail and silver arrow bridle trail.

This was a nice hike for the mileage. If you start at the road as described, you basically have a decent hill climb, and then a ridge walk with moderate ups and downs. This was a good hike for getting in some longer miles without excessive elevation.
