Trail starts just below the Lookout at the top of Mt. Marston. Trail follows a ridge line with some short climbs, and passes through the 2015 burn. After a final climb, it starts a long descent into the valley. It gets progressively rockier and has some minor creek crossings near the end. Coast down NF 7006 back to the highway.

Majority of the trail is overgrown. Lots of dead, burnt trees curled over the trail to stab or closeline riders. Still rideable, but use caution.

 Very narrow and difficult trail experts only. Most of the trail is less than a foot white scattered with logs and rocks. There were many trees down. It is doable but sketchy
