It was the start of the hottest days of this summer and after a little rain. Getting to this location made me want a jacked up truck because of how bad the road was. I parked my car at a gentleman's house after asking permission and started my hike.

The hike was nothing but up with no alternating slopes. The only animals I've seen were bugs and a bat when I reached the top. The flies and mosquitoes were particularly annoying being there the whole time.

The trail was not easy to find. You take Huckleberry Lane for about 1/3 mile. You will pass some houses. If you come to a gate you went too far. The trail is on the left just after the last house on the left before the gate. It crosses over the creek and goes up the hill.
