The trail begins at the Kohm-Ya-Mah-Nee Visitor Center with a short descent to a bridge over West Sulphur Creek, and then through fields of arrow-leaf balsam-roots before entering red-fir forest. After crossing a refreshing creek (which may be dry later in the summer season), the trail makes some short moderately-steep climbs and then descends to the overlook. From the overlook, the trail descends to cross East Sulphur Creek near Mill Creek Falls
. The trail continues on the other side of the falls as the Crumbaugh Lake Trail
Flora & Fauna
Along with the balsam-roots, you will find a variety of wildflowers in season including columbine and lupine. The red-fir forest hosts other conifers as well. Look for various butterflies and damsel flies, especially along the creeks. Look across the open slopes and in the trees for various birds such as robins, steller's jays and tanagers. You may encounter a black-tailed deer or even a black bear.
