The submitted route cuts off part of Trail #1.  The trail goes back to the parking lot.  The submitted route takes an access road back to the main road rather than back to the trailhead.

If you're planning on getting water along the way, it appears the only convenient place to get it is at the trailhead for #5.  However, there is a sign saying that use of those spigots for water is only for RVs.
