It circles back around to the west and passes above Dairy Springs Campground, crosses several forest roads and then turns to the east and joins up again with the old railroad bed. It crosses FR 132 and then just south of Railroad Tank the trail turns to the east and works its way over to FR 651, which is the entry to Pinegrove Campground. It crosses Highway 3 and climbs up past the Horse Mesa Trailhead. It turns to the north and crosses Anderson Mesa, and then passes Horse Lake. It follows a two-track, turns to the west, becomes a trail again, and passes a trail junction with the Lakeview Campground Trail. After crossing FR 129 the trail passes Vail Lake and Prime Lake, and then skirts around the Lowell Observatory.
