This trail is no longer available. The land is now designated as a wildlife refuse with no access. Do not drive down this road! At the end are some EXTREMELY unfriendly locals! The trail mentioned as accessible is a nice hike, just not the one described here.

There is a trail there and the hike is not so difficult, there is a dedicated parking lot on the left side of the road and the hike starts with a little bridge on the right side, you just can't miss it. You have a little green bench waiting for you on the top of the second plateau, just for the view.

This trail doesn't exist. Don't bother even trying. It doesn't even deserve one star. The directions are all wrong, reality looks nothing like the directions. There is no dirt road. The paved road ends at a "PRIVATE PROPERTY - DO NOT TRESPASS SIGN" and there is nowhere else to go.
