Description

From the Meadow Loop, you'll come across a sign post and junction marking the beginning of the Telegraph trail. This trail is fairly steep with some obstacles and executes one giant switchback with great views of Horse Gulch and the La Plata Mountains the whole way up.

Eventually it reaches a bench at the top, from which you can descend back into Horse gulch via Anasazi Descent, or take Telegraph 2 or Crites Connect to access many other trails in Carbon Junction or Big Canyon.
