Default Hope Slide plane crash

Hi,

I have been searching for info about a trail that goes up the Hope Slide to the Albatross plane crash of 1966 but haven't found anything useful. If anyone knows anything please help me. Some questions I have are: Is the start of the trail easy to find? Which side of the slide is the crash located? Approximately how long does it take to reach the crash site? Is there much left of the aircraft?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

I heard that the crash is on the left side of the slide if you are facing it.
15 or 20 minute hike. Let me know if you find it. Saw some pics on the web. There looks to be a pretty big section there.
