First off the trailhead is like two miles further up the road than this map shows. If you go to the trailhead as it is now you wind up on a private driveway, the old man that lives there was nice enough to fire a warning shot with his shotgun.
Keep going up the road, no turns, the county maintained road will end, private property signs on the right hand side, keep going. I parked by the white Road Closed sign, road past there looked drivable by the edge is prone to slides. Walk from there to the actual trailhead is like 5 minutes, 5 more minutes gets you to the trail log book.
The trail seems to be mainly and old logging road with some big sections that have been washed out. I made it about 30 minutes up the trail before I got to a pretty serious stream. Best case was fast water up to my knees, worst case was a tumble down the slick boulders and waterfall. I will try this one again in maybe August.
