“This trail is primarily used to access Mavis and Fox Creek Lakes.”— Bruce Hope
This area is also popular with hunters starting in late September. It's advisable to wear "hunter orange" or other bright colors if planning a late-fall run in this area.
It then drops slightly off the ridge and continues climbing steadily to a junction with the Mavis Lake Trail #5579, at about 2.8 miles from the trailhead. Up to this point the trail is well used, easy to follow, and has no obstacles. However, above its junction with the #5579, its quality deteriorates somewhat, with more rocky sections and more fallen trees. After one switchback and a rising climb, it ends at a junction with the Pacific Crest Trail on the crest of the Scott Mountains.
