Description

This short trail makes for a quick hike between Glacier Knobs and Lake Haiyaha. It links the Lake Haiyaha Trail to the Loch Vale Trail, and Mills Lake - Black Lake Trail.

From Lake Haiyaha Trail, the trail descends at moderate grades before flattening out drastically. The trail contours around the eastern flank of the West Glacier Knob before dropping down to the junction.
