Overview

The usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. There may also be additional wilderness-specific restrictions in force; check with the district office if in doubt. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics. Camp 100 feet from fragile areas; bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually closed by snow from November to June.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The main purpose of this short trail is to provide a link between the Indian Race Track Trail #171 and the Pacific Crest Trail (USFS #2000). It can be used, along with the PCT and Forest Roads 60 and 6048, to run a loop over Red Mountain from and to the Crest Camp Trailhead. It also allows for shorter access to the Indian Race Track from Crest Camp.
