Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Enter the Clearbrook Condo development on the Kank and go left at the fork. Road will curve slowly clockwise. Watch for unit 97 on the left, then a row of boulders followed by 6 visitor parking spots. Park there. The trail drops down between 2 of the boulders but there is no sign. On the Clearbrook Condo Association website there is a link for the Old Osseo Trail which provides this information.

Comments
Comments: The slope gets steep with few rocks to help, so the leaves are a little slippery. A dusting of snow higher up - with more snow this will be a good place for butt sliding. Near the top there are several directional viewing spots which were better than I expected. The last one is a side path left. Only about 5.5 miles out and back.
