“Old-school singletrack through a sea of Douglas fir, hemlock, maple, and ferns.”— Eric Ashley
After climbing about 350 feet, the trail levels off and starts contouring the hill towards the southeast. It briefly merges with an old fire road before heading off to the left. Shortly after, you'll enter a stretch of old-growth forest.
After crossing three small creeks, the trail heads up and makes five quick switchbacks before leveling out again. At 2,300 feet, this is the trail's high point. From here, it begins a more-controlled descent to another branch of Silver Creek, crosses it, and continues descending to the banks of the South Fork Silver Creek.
After crossing the South Fork Silver Creek at 1,740 feet, the trail climbs up several more switchbacks. It finally levels out at 2,100 feet, where it meets up with the Buck Mountain Loop Trail.
