“A short connector from Warren Peak highway to the Carson draw System.”

This trail closes in the winter. No trail marks are evident and it's not a Forest Service trail.
This trail begins at Warren Peak highway, and heads down an embankment to connect to the Forest Service road. It meanders down a short two track section of road to a creek crossing point of the road. This is Houston creek; take the left.

It meanders down along the stream, with summer cattle moving the trail on a yearly basis. It contains multiple rock gardens, stream crossings, and a hike-a-bike. At one point it's difficult for the GPS to get satellites due to the cliff sections bordering the trail. Water has been found to flow at least 4-5 ft high during spring. Later in summer and fall, the stream skips in and out of the ground creating the rock garden stream crossings.

Animals known to be habituating the area: mountain lions, cattle, foxes, coyotes, owls, occasional technical mountain bike rider.
