Info: Totally dry. The parking area for the trailhead is a small grassy meadow. Pay close attention or you may miss the sign, which is kind of tucked behind some trees at the edge of the meadow and is difficult to see if you’re cruising past. For low clearance vehicles there are places to park in the scrub prior to the road getting rough.
