This trail provides access to the Pinkerton-Flagstaff Trail and also to the eastern half of Hermosa Creek. The trail traverses up several steep switchbacks for the first mile and a half and then levels out. It then travels through some open meadows that are full of native plants and flowers and continues slightly uphill through aspen groves to a cabin near the head of the Pinkerton-Flagstaff Trail. Water is available in several streams, but should be filtered, due to problems with Giardia in the area.
