    Sadly, I never found the entrance. My GPS led me down a treacherous road to the entrance of a waste water plant and a "no entry" sign. I then found another entrance that was marked as a county park but was closed off by an iron gate. I then realized that I had no phone service in the area so I then opted for cheese fries at a local cafe.

    A fun place to explore and hike. Beautiful in the fall. I'd only suggest SUV or Trucks to travel on the gravel road.
