Free parking is available at the Thunder Rock Campground.
Need to Know
Restroom access and free parking.
The initial ascent is steep, and I had to scramble around a fallen tree. Not a lot of rocks and roots otherwise.
Parking is located at the Thunder Rock Campground. You'll run through the campground to the cul-de-sac at the end where the singletrack trail starts. The trail starts out with some pretty steep switchbacks but then flattens out and is more manageable for most of the way.
At the end, you can either turn around and run back or take the forestry road back to the trailhead for a loop. You can also take the forestry road down to the Thunder Rock Express
bike trail for some additional mileage and climbing.
The trail was not very maintained at the time of recording, and I had to scramble around a downed tree on the initial climb.
Flora & Fauna
Mostly rhododendron and evergreens with a few deciduous trees.
