Description

Access this trail from either the Round Mountain North Trailhead or the Round Mountain South Trailhead.

The trail climbs over the top of Round Mountain (at times steeply) and descends the other side to connect with Independent Mine Trail #808 near Forest Road 42. There are many open meadows, large stands of old growth ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forest. Water is scarce, so be sure to bring enough for your entire trip.
