This is a great option to find a bit more solitude than some of the other nearby trails. It's an easy one to make into an out-and-back of any length and can be tracked in the winter for snowshoes, skinning, or even running (though much less dependable).

The first few miles undulate a bit but mostly track up, over, and then down, with some steep switchbacks above the river valley. From the bottom, the remaining ten-plus miles head uphill at a fairly consistent grade.

Longer loop options exist with Dead Dog Trail and Middle Lake Trail, though this trail dead-ends at its southernmost point at Upper Camp Lake below Eagle Peak.
