    Rick said: After hiking the other end of this trail we decided to approach it from the northern end and hike up. The trail head is on the south side of the bridge when you cross the river; FS road 97 will be on the right. You can park here or cross the bridge then park on the left side of the road. The trail is next to the bridge. As it's not heavily used it can be hard to see. If you poke around you'll see it. There are no blazes on this trail. I saw some tape others have left up but nothing is marked. Also, bring hiking poles as this trail (coming up from 215) is very steep. There are several false peaks before the climb is over. Once you're up top it's nice, with views on both sides.
