This hike begins and ends at the parking lot for the Memaloose Overlook Viewpoint.
The trail begin south of old Highway 30 across the road from the parking area.
There are no signs at the beginning of the trail; just a path. The hike takes you
through a moderate oak forest with occasional evergreens. About one mile into the
hike the trail comes to a small stream where the nebulous junction begins. Here you
can choose the hill you wish to hike first; Marsh Hill to the left or Chetfield Hill
to the right. Both hikes are an up and back adventure. Bang for the buck, this hike
is spectacular in April and May for wildflowers.
