Trail head is a few hundred yards from where you park by a pedestrian bridge. No marking but it's the only major trail heading up hill so not hard to find. definitely agree with the hard rating. First mile and a half are straight up hill. you come out on a bench and get a break from the climb. Wind your way along the ridge top. In and out of the trees. One more short but steep assent and you're rewarded with a panaramic view of four mountains. Breadth taking. Wild flower we're beautiful. Don't underestimate the walk back down. Can be tricky.
