Description

From the parking area, pass through a gate and head up the trail, which is lined with fields of Buttercup flowers. This lasts for about a half mile when you gradually enter the forest. At this point, the trail gets incredibly muddy. Some attempts at trail maintenance are apparent with logs placed across the trail, but many have sunk into the mud. There is really no way around this and it lasts for nearly 3/4 of a mile.

At the 6 mile mark, the trail begins to climb and occasionally can get very steep. When you finally emerge from the forest, you arrive at a trail junction. To the left is the Canadon De La Oveja Trail. To the right is the Laguna del Caminante Trail. The trail ends here. You can turn right to reach the laguna and a good turnaround point, or turn left for a thru-hike if you have a car waiting at the other end.

Flora & Fauna

Fields of buttercups are located near the beginning and wild horses can occasionally be found.
