Quick way to access Trial and Error and Shit Happens. The first 75-100m is cruizy, but then it becomes super steep and impossible to bike up without getting off and pushing. It's so steep and slippery that someone has put in a rope line

Access Info

If you are driving to the trailhead, there isn't any public parking in the immediate area. It's best to park on side of the road where Summer Lane meets Lakeshore Drive near the Green Lake Park boat ramp launch (on the lake side of the highway), then Emerald Drive > Pinetree Lane > Emerald Drive. The trailhead isn't marked but it is obvious (opposite to Deer Horn Place).

       someone is building here and has closed this access point to hikers and riders. Can they do this?

       sorry, I got this wrong. This trail is still open but very steep. It is the water resevoir access road that is closed.
