The trail begins by following a stretch of dirt road heading to the east. After several miles of rolling hills, the trail turns and heads north, going down Hunter Creek Canyon. A moderate decline following Hunter Creek takes trail users through several nice camping areas, including a large transfer camp, where livestock are moved to and from this mountainous region for seasonal grazing.
The trail then connects with the south fork of Lime Creek and heads up canyon for a very short stretch. It then hops over a small ridge and crosses over into the middle fork of Lime Creek. Trail users then head down canyon for a short leg, until the middle fork and north fork of Lime Creek connect. Adventurers will then head north, going up the north fork of Lime Creek. At this point, a slow, steady climb begins up the canyon.
This entire section is thickly vegetated, with lush layers of underbrush thriving on the flowing waters of Hunter and Lime Creeks. Sections of the trail quickly become overgrown, especially since this area sees very little use. It is important to bring maps and orienteering equipment to help you in case you lose the path. There are also numerous other trails in the area, so it is easy to go up the wrong canyon in many places. Always be aware of where you are.
