Getting To Mt. Bai Mao Trailhead

Getting to the Mt. Baimao Trailhead is a bit tricky. You will drive along Route 8 to Kilometer Marker..... Here, you will bear right and head down a slope to a dam across the river. It looks as if you can't drive across the top of the dam, but there is a lane open for traffic. Make your way across and then take a right turn. Follow along the narrow road until you see a fork. Bear left down the very narrow road until you cross the orange bridge in the picture. Find a place to park.
