The smallness of the parking lot, and the small number of vehicles in it, got my "trail o meter" buzzing. Because the country was looking really nice, the trail looked really lightly used, so it had all the makings of a new "gem" (a special trail).
I shrugged into my pack, hung my camera from my neck, and stuck my hat on my head. And off I went.
Here is a shot of the sign at the entrance.
Now, don't get confused at this point. Because you will see a trail heading off behind the sign. That is not the trail to Trap Park, but instead it is a trail to Trap Lake which is close by (in fact, if you keep driving up the Long Draw road past the Trap Park trail turnoff, you will drive right past the lake). Anyway, assuming you want to got to Trap Park, head up the trail that goes through the steel gate (you can see it in my "parking lot" photo).
