Details

This not well know trail connects to Kenosha Crest.
The trail starts in now barren aspen groves & Ponderosa pine forests. A portion of the trail is a steep climb through Lodgepole Pines.

You will cross Payne Creek after 2.5 miles and follow an eroded, abandoned road for about another mile after the creek crossing. Along the trip you will see beaver ponds and additional creek tributaries.

Leader will send message on whether snowshoes will be required 2 days in advance of the hike.
