I followed the directions to the trailhead from this app. It takes you to a small parking area with a dirt road leading from it. No trail sign at all except for a real small one in the corner of the bulletin board mentioning Fall River. We walked up the dirt road for about a mile and it splits into two dirt roads. We took the right one as that lined up with the trail map in this app. It goes for a total of 3 miles from the parking lot and then dead ends. Maybe we should have went left at the fork. Only thing we saw was a bunch of cows close to the road.

We hiked this trail in 2006. In 3 nights of backpacking and internal day hikes, we never saw another hiker, nor tracks of human hikers. Plenty of bear tracks however! What a wild and beautiful place. Bring bear spray and hang your food and cooking gear high and away from your camp. Marvelous.
