South end at Skyline Trail #712 in Spence Springs Basin, 1/4 mile from #712's north end at Westside Story Trail #725 and 1.4 miles from Iron Springs Trailhead. See #725 and Noodle Loop Trail #760 for more about the Spence Springs Basin. First mile from #712 junction climbs and winds through ponderosa pine and oaks to Skyline Drive. After 0.7 mile heading north, there are good views of Spence Springs Basin, Thumb Butte and the San Francisco Peaks in distance. The 3.4 miles north of Skyline Drive is a railroad right-of-way through mostly chaparral with the north end of the Sante Fe Trail where Box Culvert Trail #620 continues on the railroad right-of-way.
