This wide gently sloped trail climbs through pine forest before narrowing and dropping briefly to Lower Cold Creek Trail.

Access Info

The lower trailhead off Powerline Trail is marked with a forest service sign, but the upper trailhead is not and is easily missed when going up Lower Cold Creek Trail (but is easier to see coming down Cold Creek Trail).
