From the Brainard Lake winter TH, head to the gate station. To the left, you'll see a well-marked trail. If you're here in winter, be sure to stay off the ski only trails (they are usually marked) and stay on the snowshoe trails (marked with blue and white snowshoeing figure on the trees).

This is also a summer use trail that provides alternate connectivity between the Sourdough Trail - Southern Half and Brainard Lake Recreation Area, though summer travel is not recommended.
