This is a confusing hike when you first start. Once you go through the field with the view and come up on the hill, you loose sight of the trail. Be sure when you don't know which way to go, go LEFT. It looks correct to go right but you will shortly come across a faint path covered with brush which is the WRONG WAY. The start has a long bridge, go that way. May 29, 2017
