Rating: 2stars
Difficulty: 2stars  Solitude: 4point5stars
Miles Hiked: 5.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes


We took the eastern part before, so this time we hiked form the Hwy 496 entrance to the west.  The western part is not well labeled as we hit a fork, to the right ended in the lake, to the left hit a jeep trail which we followed.  According to this map somehow we would go down the middle.  Eventually we saw some pink ribbons and turned off the jeep trails but that seemed to end too.  According to the map here that was the right way.  Eastern half is definitely the nicer half of the trail, but you can hike west til the 2nd crossing, about 15 minutes west of the hwy 496 entrance.  Good luck finding the scout camp.

The author apologizes for the lack of table of contents and index that seem to be absent in the Kindle edition. He is working with the publisher to remedy the problem. They are present in the paperback version.
