The trail begins at Stafford Creek trailhead and ends at the junction with Cascade Creek Trail #1217 at Navaho Pass. This trail accesses Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area.From the road, the trail goes uphill through the forest along the right bank of Stafford Creek and is moderately steep. At the 3 mile point, it turns west with the valley and climbs up through meadows and scattered trees below Navaho Peak. Just past a large meadow, there is a junction with Standup Trail 1369. From there, the trail takes a right and switchbacks uphill through rocky areas with sparse trees. It then crosses a large bare rocky area and switchbacks a couple of more times through trees and meadows before reaching the ridgetop.

From there, one has good views of the surrounding country, including the Stuart Range to the north. The trail continues down to Ingalls Creek as trail 1217 on the Wenatchee River Ranger District. Please obey all wilderness regulations. Water may be scarce later in the season on the upper portion of the trail.
