Watch out for rattlesnakes, cattle and wet trails. When wet the trail is very slippery due to the bentonite clay. Also, runners must yield the right of way to horse riders and be respectful when approaching from behind to not spook the horses. Carry a map or use the Trail Run Project mobile app to make sure you stay on the correct path instead of following the cattle trails.
Start at the campground and follow the signs for the I Trail to the right. The trail has a steep descent shortly after starting, followed by a steep climb. Pass a couple of trail junctions to get to the gated fence. The I Trail continues downhill until reaching the TX Trail near the Little Missouri River.
