This is a nice suggestion for getting to the Grotto Trail. The Grotto Trail is a steep trail up to the top, but very rewarding. I didn’t see another soul on my hike. Coming back, the last portion of the hike suggested by All Trails is to stay on the Jackson Creek Trail, but after I crossed the road there was an orange barrier across the trail and sign that said ‘caution trail change ahead’. I didn’t know exactly what this meant and if it was going to divert me away from P5. And since I was near the end of the hike, hot, tired and out of water, I decided to just walk on the road back to P5. It ended up being pretty much straight up hill. Had I known all this I would’ve just returned to P5 on Canyon Vista Trail as opposed to Jackson Creek. Oh well, hindsight.
