       This an excellent trail that is misrepresented on the map. The very bottom of the trail is overgrown and cannot be accessed as pictured. If entering from the bottom you can park along a forest rode and enter from there. There is also a sister trail that is missing from the map that is more difficult uphil, but is a rollicking good time downhill. Enter the forest road from the two lane highway and go until you see a clearing on the left. The trail starts half way through the clearing. Have fun!
