Features Commonly Backpacked

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.

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.
