Directions to the campsite for those who arrive late and do not go in with the group:
From the trailhead head south on the trail until you get to a sign in the trail. Go to the right toward combs road. This short trail will go downhill then before it starts back up it intersects Combs road. Turn left and go about a quarter mile. We will camp to the left of the road. The road has been closed for many years, so it is only a trail now.
Here is a link to the official trail information. It does not show the campsite. We will only be hiking a small portion of the trail.
