This trail gets very overgrown and eventually disappears. The USFS maps show that this trail continues up and over the ridge, but they are wrong. Expect a bushwack if you want to get very far.

Access Info

Follow Wardsworth Canyon Trail #10 to Dry Canyon Cutoff trail #128. When reaching the first pond bear left. About a half mile later go left on the double track for a few hundred feet and then enter the trail on the right.

Disclaimer

The trail connects over the ridge to Wardsworth Canyon, but the ridge crossing seems to be overgrown in places and clear in other places.
