There are 2 large boulders next to campsite #4 (as seen in picture with the dog). Shoot to the right immediately after passing the second boulder (about 1-2 o'clock). We marked the trail with a big rock cairn and an arrow made of sticks...as well as a piece of yellow tape on a smaller aspen tree. DO NOT MISS the trail. If you head north up the hillside past the trail, it dumps you onto a loose rock slide and adds a half hour to what should be a 10 min hike.
