Description

This trail runs between Fourmile and Horseshoe Campgrounds , a distance of just under 1.5 miles. Near its high point (10,900 ft), it passes through a small grove of ancient limber and Bristlecone pine "character" trees. From either end, the trail makes a fairly gentle ascent up timbered slopes to Limber Grove. The grove is much closer to the west end of the trail, so Fourmile is the usual access.

High-top boots with lug soles are recommended for this trail because it crosses loose talus slopes that can tire feet in other shoes.
