Schofield was an old mining town and is now a ghost town with a number of old building still standing. The first portion of the road passes through a narrow, steep canyon which contains a number of picturesque water falls.
This lightly used trail varies from easy to fairly steep in some areas and consists of a few loose, rocky stretches. The majority of the trail affords an excellent view of the encompassing mountains and the East Fork Valley.
The first 3/4 mile of this trail is steep but levels off to a gradual climb when you reach the creek. After the creek crossing the trail follows the creek through willows, meadows and patches of conifer.
