Need to Know

Be ready for a scramble/light climb.

If you are not steady footed this is not for you.

Description

Head out from the parking "area" as if the road continued on before long you'll see signs you are on the right path, a wash out here, an old tree slid there and even a few actual signs. Once you reach the second bridge this would be the chance to grab water, presuming you'll be brining just what you'll need and no extra, there will be plenty of water are you progress up the actual trail so don't over do it. The trail is just up ahead. You'll see a sign that tells you you have arrived, the sign reads "infrequently maintained" and infrequently and maintained are used in the loosest sense of the words.

There are parts where you'll need to used your hands, ie going vertical. Fall hazards both on the way up but more so on the way down.

Have fun!

Flora & Fauna

All manner of berries and tons of brook trout.
