The trail starts 2 miles up the Avalanche Creek Trail. It is a steep trail with some flowers near the top or the ridge and great views of Avalanche Creek and the Roaring Fork Valley. This trail is used primarily by horses during the fall hunting season. The trail ends on the ridge and from here you can continue on to the Williams Lake trail.
