This is a more difficult trail. Scenery includes view of forested ridges, forested lowlands and many open areas with views across the drainage. The trail includes complex switchbacks around boulders, open hillsides, scree slopes, and steep drops. The trail changes quickly so be alert. The trail follows the Wild and Scenic Fifteenmile Creek and goes through pine and oak forests. This trail connects with Cedar Creek trail #457 to make a popular loop.
