This is a pleasant and flat, even trail with some loose cobbles.
You can approach this trail either from the north, or from the south, though you'll always access this one from the Sherd Lake Loop Trail #046
. This description meets with the southern end of the trail, and heads north. From the Sherd Lake Loop Trail #046
stay right at the intersection (head north). The first half mile you pass through alpine fields until you re-enter the forest.
Shortly you enter a section of forest mixed with talus and scree. Pass an intermittent lake and then power uphill until you reach Sherd Lake. Reconnect with the Sherd Lake Loop Trail #046
to return to the northern parking lot, or retrace your steps to reach your starting point.
