Trail #345 can be accessed from Trail #308 on the north end near the Williamson Valley Trailhead or #348 on the southern end near the lake. Hiking the trail south to north would be the preferred direction as you enjoy more downhill.
The trail begins with a short rocky section with a few rocks. After a tight left turn, you'll be near the lake and ready for the real fun. Once across the creek and through the gate, you'll encounter a short up then a loose, rocky downhill section.
After a short uphill the trail then rolls along Mint Wash with smaller ups and downs. In the monsoon season, there may be water in Mint Wash, so be ready to get wet. The trail then intersects #347 Willow Trail at the gate. Go left and you have a short climb into another rocky sections. Continue up and down in the rocks until the trail ends at Trail #308.
