There are two locations where you can park for the Ammo trail. The official USFS hiker parking is the one on the left (labeled Ammo Shuttle Stop). You can also park at Marshfield Station (noted on the map) and there is a trail from there that joins Ammo. When the cog is running there is a parking fee. It doesn't open until 4/30 though so I believe that you're OK parking there at no cost. The USFS hiker lot requires a parking pass which can be paid by self-pay envelope at the lot ($3.00 per day).
