Description

From the Meadow Loop, head up the Telegraph trail at a junction going up toward Pautsky Point. Eventually, the trail comes across a bench and plaque, about 20 feet further down the trail is a sign post and the junction for Anasazi Descent.

Begin down the trail on an initially steep and rocky slope with mild exposure through a grove of oak brush, with many rocks, roots, and other obstacles. Eventually the pitch mellows out and becomes less technical although still rather fast and steep. Eventually it will meet back up with the Meadow Loop.
