This trail is within the Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. 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 between November and May.

Need to Know

The #1437 is subject to blowdown that can make travel difficult. As of 2018, it had been cleared only through Grasshopper Meadows and out to Cripple Camp shelter. If you plan to do use it as part of a loop with the #1574, it's best to check with the Forest Service district office in Tiller about conditions on the #1437 before committing yourself to it.

Description

This trail leaves the Lakes Trail #1578 not far east of Cliff Lakes and climbs the north flank of Grasshopper Mountain to a junction with the Grasshopper Mountain Trail #1580 near Grasshopper Spring. It then crosses the ridge and descends through Grasshopper Meadow to end at a junction with the Acker Divide Trail #1437. It is mainly used to reach the summit of Grasshopper Mountain.

A loop is possible if you descend the #1574 to the Acker Divide Trail #1437 and then go west on that trail, past Mosquito Camp and Little Fish Lake back to the Lakes Trail #1578.
