We got to the trail sign about 9 am. We saw one blue trail marker on a tree near the sign. That was the only one to be seen but we followed the trail of trash up to the first set of steps. Wandered off the trail as there wasn't any markers of any kind to be seen. With twists and turns a short hike turned in to something more. When we finally made it up to the bluff. We didn't get to see much as there was a crowd of people on one and someone was cooking on the other it looked like they were camping . We did find a quiet area to sit and rest before starting back. There was a trail marker that led off to one side and we followed that until we realized that if was the wrong way but it was marked. .. If we go again we will take a larger trash bag to carry out the trash.
