Nice trail. Still quite a bit of snow when you enter the wilderness area about 2.5 miles in. As for the directions. After the last right turn (at the gate). You are almost there. About 1/2 mile more. Don’t worry the road dead ends at the trail head and you won’t miss it.

The directions are super hard to follow and the markers are misleading. The beginning of the trail does give a cool post apocalyptic feel though
