The lower portion of the trail was constructed in the 1980's to tie into the historic Eagles Rest Trail #3461
, which led to the Sawtooth Trail #3634 located along the ridgeline between Hardesty Mountain and Mount June.
At the junction, bearing right will lead to Mount June Trail
and a left will lead past Sawtooth Rock and on to Hardesty Mountain trail. The trail climbs up the ridgeline with switchbacks and has an excellent view toward the west.
