Description

This trail begins on the east edge of the Icehouse CCC parking area, works its way out to and across the fire break, then southeast until it intersects the old homestead road a little south of the decomposed granite pit. It continues south on the road, which eventually becomes more of a trail, until it intersects the Pioneer Pass Road/Forest Road (FR) 112. After crossing FR 112, the trail continues north along the creek, then up to a saddle and around a ridge along a fence line. Travelers will find an old mine shaft and the remains of a sawmill and cabin at the junction with Telephone Trail 192. Near the end of the trail is a fork. The right fork leads to Ferndell Trailhead, while the main trail crosses a road, climbs and then crosses Forest Road (FR) 651C before ending at a T-intersection with Middle Trail 202.
