Starts at the end of the Jedi and climbs through Horse Creek Meadow up to Forest Road 2509. Terrain starts out mostly flat as it passes through the meadow. Take the left fork at Road 121. From here, the climb steepens as it enters a forested area and crosses a small ravine. It then climbs steadily through the forest up to Road 2509. This trail is the beginning of the popular Silverthorn - Jedi loop.
