Description

The trail gently rises for about a mile, then drops into an area known as Beaver Park where it meets the Little Beaver Creek Trail (#948). The trail climbs southward for the next 4 miles before turning west near timberline. It enters a -mile of travel zone where it intersects the Browns Lake Trail (#941), then continues westward and descends 4 miles to terminate at the Big South Trail (#944) which has travel zone restrictions in place.

Along the way, it passes junctions for Beaver Creek Trail (#942), Zimmerman Trail (#940), and Mirror Lake Trail (#943). Mirror Lake Trail provides access to Mirror Lake and the Mummy Pass Trail in the backcountry system of Rocky Mountain National Park.
