Park in Marshall Gold Discovery SHP. Make your way on foot across the bridge and down Bayne Road to the Dutch Creek Falls trail. Then, when you find yourself at the base of the big hill, take the trail straight up it for a rise of 1000 feet in half a mile.

Extreme terrain is very dangerous, not recommended, but a lot of people do it anyway. Make sure you have the upper body strength for coming back down on your hands, or small feet to fit the footholds.

Best in late spring: winter will create a mud slip hazard, summer will be totally exposed to sun and the thistle and burs will come out and stick through fall.
