“This trail is a spectacular shortcut to Reds Meadow.”— Ang La
The trail is well established through sometimes-dense trees in the Ansel Adams Wilderness for about two miles. It then opens up to the burnt area in Reds Meadow Valley where you can see Devils Postpile across the way. Follow the trail where it ends at the Reds Meadow pack station.
It's a tranquil run through the woods with lots of native flora and fauna.
You can run back or take the shuttle ($7) to the ski lodge and then take another shuttle (free) back into town when you can. From town, you can then catch the Lake Mary Trolley (free) back to Horseshoe Lake.
Dogs are allowed on leash and can also ride the shuttles as long as they are muzzled.
