Description

This trail begins from the end of the South Fork Ross Fork Trail, with a mellow run up the valley. There are some recent burns in the area that can result in a number of down trees. Trail crews do the best they can in the summer months, so the trail is going to be clearer towards the end of July.

After a mellow creekside run you'll come to the last mile which will switchback up to a pass; the switchbacks can be loose in sections so watch your footing.

Once at the pass the trail is a little steeper down to Alturas Creek. Bear right at the junction; a left turn will take you into the Sawtooth Wilderness.
