My fiance and I had some initial difficulty finding the trail. The guide says to "Turn left at Indian Fort Theatre." There is not a sign for Indian Fort Theatre. Instead, the sign just says "Entrance." So turn left at that sign and park in the lot. The hike itself is fantastic. Great workout, but not over-bearing. Also, as noted in other reviews, it is nice because you can hike as much or as little as you want... lots of shortcuts. It was very hot even in March, so maybe not the best hike for the summer months. Also, it was very crowded, so if you are looking for seclusion, this is not the trail for you. However, if you want a great workout with beautiful views, this is a wonderful option.
