Cool ride but we miss judged the length. That combined with 100+ degrees put us in a bit of a scary spot.

So, for those of us who don't have a helicopter, how would we get there please.

Started at the Cotton creek trailhead. Very nice.

Good and easy hike. The start Point on the map means parking on the side of an Interstate. If that's your thing then go for it. Although a longer hike, the trailhead where I started has a parking lot and easy access to the Trail. You will likely see bikers and perhaps horses along the way. Mostly solid footing, with some sandy areas. No shade. Started at sunrise and enjoyed the views.
