The trail begins at the large parking area by Diamondfield Jack Campground. On the southeast end of the parking lot, an ATV track heads into the forest and up a hill. The trail switches back and forth, slowly climbing a ridge. Once you gain the ridge, you have astounding views of the surrounding area. You'll continue northward, following the ridgeline.
At one point, the trail intersects with the Pike Mountain Road, and you'll head right/northeast while the road goes to the left, to the summit of Pike Mountain. It is worth the ascent, because the interpretive area at the summit is nice.
The trail descends the north face of Pike, and intersects with Trail Canyon Trail #241
which drops into the Little Fork Trail #163
. The Pike Mountain Trail continues north, along the ridge. It enters a nice forest, and again heads northeast. You'll cross a road that heads northwest, but you'll want to stay on the narrow track to stay on this path. The trail ends at the A-H Creek Trail #167
and Wahlstrom Hollow Trail #238
. At that point, you can descend into Third Fork or go down Wahlstrom Hollow and look at the beaver ponds.
