Lower Smith Creek Trailhead Disclaimer

Post by jsaxton86 » June 21st, 2014, 11:21 am

The directions here state that you should "Drive down the hill to the trailhead at the end of the road."

Unfortunately, the road is in terrible condition. I tried to drive down it in a sedan, and it was extremely difficult due to the massive number of potholes. There should probably be some sort of warning.

Also, as the page states, it's an unmarked road. I assumed it would be a relatively short road, but it's actually nearly 5 miles long. It's easy enough to think you're lost when driving down an unmarked road. It's even worse when you don't know how long it is, so I think it would be useful to mention the distance of the road.

Thanks for the update. I've added your admonitions to the Field Guide entry for that trailhead.
