Starting from the large parking lot heading west, the two-track trail slowly descends for about a mile, leading from an amazing alpine area into the trees and brush below. When you reach the brush the trail narrows to about 1 ½ feet. Water drainage issues are present for the next mile with several large mud holes, there are at least 20 plus small stream crossings throughout this relatively short trail.
At 2 ¼ miles in the trail gets steep and technical. Be sure to bring the proper footwear. The trail ends back on on the road with no trailhead and only a brown sign noting the 20 mile-mark on the Richardson Highway.
If you're returning along this same path, be sure to save a little bit of energy as the return trip will be more strenuous than the way out.
