Description

Steep and sandy with no shade and no water. This trail climbs from the trailhead up a steep, sandy slope before connecting with the Sawmill Pass Trail. The gradient is less steep than from the other trailhead.

The trailhead itself is not far past the power station and the end of the paved road, and should be easily accessible for most vehicles. The trailhead is marked with an informational sign and a few bear bins, and has space for several cars.
