You will hike up a fairly steep trail. Hike accross the creek on a bridge and go up stream. Just before a ford, there is a hiking path that goes to the left, another very short distance back to another bridge. After this little hiking detour, go a very short distance; you will notice a main hiking path once again.

Hiking towards the pass will reveal a small campgroung in the trees to the right.
