Overview
This trail loops from the Larson Ridge Trailhead (vault toilet) or the Horse Trap Trailhead, traveling through cool pines and quaking aspen. The western section of trail parallels the shoreline of Willow Springs Lake. (Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest info)

The trail is an old, closed road, with minimal elevation change, that appears to be well marked. It connects with the Sardine Trail #536, and the General Crook Trail #140.
