By starting from the Highline, the hiker drops over 2,000 feet and enjoys an all-downhill excursion. The top of the trail was reconstructed in 1989, so the tread is in excellent condition. The trail switchbacks down through meadows and aspen glades. The bottom of the trail is a bit rougher and steeper: watch your step. The trail goes along the creek the last few miles and offers views that seem almost tropical. After crossing the creek, the trail merges with the Hermosa Creek Trail.
