This trail begins on the Thorp Creek Road / Forest Road 4312. It climbs past Thorp Lake and ends at the junction with Kachess Ridge Trail 1315. Trail parallels Thorp Creek through a partial cut for about 1.5 miles, gradually getting farther from the creek until the junction with Thorp Lake Trail which runs for 0.25 miles to the lake.
