Typically snowy from November through February. May be closed during the summer months due to fire danger, check with the ranger station for details. Relatively heavy hiker traffic.

Description

South Faulty begins at the end of Bill Spring Trail. After a few hundred feet, Oso Corredor Trail heads west and South Faulty continues south.

The trail contours along the steep mountainside with rock gardens, but only a couple of rocky steps. Eventually, the trail hits the wilderness boundary.
