    To hike
    Take the Kent-Kangley east from Covington. Stay on it past Route 169. Six miles beyond that intersection the road will hit a sign saying that the road will end in two miles. Just beyond that sign you will see a Blue DNR gate. Park there because that will be the trailhead. There is very minimal space for parking cars here, maybe 5 or 6 cars worth, it is on the side of the road.
