      From the south, this trail climbs steadily to the hanging basin at the top of Silver Creek gorge. From there the grade lessens but still climbs steadily, passing through alternating stands of old-growth timber and meadows, climbing through an old burn with silver snags. Leaving Silver Creek, the trail stays high on the ridge, passing below Thorp Mountain where it meets the Thorp Mountain Trail 1315.2. This trail is fairly steep and runs for about 0.5 mile to the top of Thorp Mountain where there are excellent views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Kachess. From Thorp Mountain, the main trail follows the top of No Name Ridge, ending in a clearcut logged in 1988.

      From I-90 Exit 70, just northwest of Easton, WA, go north to Forest Road 4818, turn right and drive north for one mile, then turn right at the trailhead sign onto a spur road that goes through a clearcut for about 0.5 miles to the trailhead for both 1315 and Easton Ridge 1212.

      Small unimproved trailhead with parking for 4-5 vehicles. Parking for stock trucks and trailers is available alongside the road in a clearcut .25 before the trailhead.
