This trail is in the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here; practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics, camp 100 feet from fragile areas, bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually closed by snow between November and May.

Description

This remote trail deep in the wilderness offers solitude and old-growth forest, as well as a connection between Tanner Butte and Eagle Creek.

The lower end of this trail is at the junction with the Eagle Creek Trail #440 at 2,560 feet. From there, the trail starts uphill in heavy timber, crosses a couple small streams and reaches Eagle Creek after 0.9 miles. There is no bridge, so crossing Eagle Creek will require wading or rock hopping. During the spring runoff, the water may be too high and fast for a safe crossing. There is a small campsite here.

Once across the creek, the #433 climbs more steeply through the forest for about 1.9 miles, then levels off some and contours for 1.4 miles to Big Cedar Springs at 2,960 feet. Big Cedar Springs offers 2-3 small, but nice, campsites with a nearby source of water. It is nestled among cedars, some of which are over eight feet around and may be 500 years old.

Past Big Cedar Springs, the trail does a steep 0.4 miles climb to Thrush Pond, bushy and weedy but a source of water if you need it. A little further (0.4 miles) uphill to the northwest, the #433 ends at the junction with the Tanner Butte Trail #401 at 3,680 feet.
