Please note: Users have reported that bridge is out.

Directions take you to another road with private access - use the map to go to Marmot recreational area - that is where the trail really starts. Bridge is out - but the river is beautiful and it’s a short but cute hike!

Trailhead is wrong, you have to start at Marmot Rec Area (7 miles and turn left and go 3 more miles). BUT the bridge is CLOSED due to it being repaired, so it is impassable. Bummer.

Great walk, hard to find the start, realized it’s 3 miles down the gravel road to the “end” of trail.

Down a 2-3mile long gravel road with no signs about there even being a legit day use site until you can see the parked cars at the end, there's a sign there

The bridge in the pictures is at the end of this trail. Start there. If you attempt to begin this trail at the listed starting point, you will surely be lost and unable to find the trail.
