Directions: Just west of Solon in northeast Johnson Co. IF COMING FROM HWY.1 - turn west on Hwy. 382, Main St. in Solon, and follow it west to the west edge of town, where there is a fork. At this point follow Main St. slightly to the left, rather than 382 slightly to the right. Quickly come to a T-intersection, Chabal St., and turn left (south). Come soon to another T-intersection, Sovers St., and turn right (west). The trailhead is at the first bend left (south), where there is a church in front of you, and a high school field to the right. IF COMING FROM NORTH OF LAKE MACBRIDE and west of Solon along Hwy. 382, look for Chabal St. on your right just at the west edge of Solon; then as above. IF COMING FROM THE LAKE MACBRIDE AREA - take Mahaffey Bridge Rd. north to 180th St., and then take 180th east (right), along the south shore of the lake's north arm, 1.7 miles to Racine Rd. Turn left (north) on Racine, and the trailhead is at the first bend to the right, where the church is.
