This is a fairly easy trail but I have had trouble in the past finding the trail that connects Stone creek to Olson Creek trails. That may have changed now that the trail had been rerouted it crosses private property and switchbacks up the side of the hill right from the parking lot. The parking lot is average and there are often horse trailers in there so it can get a little crowded but bikers, hikers, and riders still park up by the Bridger Canyon Road and start from there. I enjoy the hike, it starts off in trees on the Stone Creek Side.
