From the trailhead, follow the dirt road through pastureland for approximately 1/4 mile where the road turns left. The trail begins here and continues straight before reaching a fork where the Grouse Lake Trail goes left. Stay on the right trail, which quickly enters dense stands of conifers. At a junction with an old, decommissioned Forest Service road leading to Meadow Mountain, the trail effectively ends for bikes. This trail is best used as part of the Lower Grouse Creek
continue west of the Meadow Mountain cut-off.
