“This trail is a great out-and-back with tremendous views and easy access.”— Tom Mabrey
Upon leaving the trailhead parking lot, you'll cross a well-built foot bridge and make an immediate right. You'll continue approximately 2.0-2.5 miles along a small creek up the valley to another right turn. It is at this right turn that the trail leaves the canyon floor and ascends steeply toward a "saddle".
You'll have beautiful views of the Pole Canyon behind as well as some views of Wheeler Peak ahead as you summit the saddle. You continue to follow the well-marked trail until you reach the intersection with Timber Creek trail.
