Description

The trail connects the Kirkham Ridge trail and the Wyoming-Fir Creek trail while traveling through a number of old burn areas. Forest fires in 1994 and 2006 burned across the trail, so there could be multiple trees down depending on the time of the year and when the trail crews make it onto the trail.

The trail begins off the Kirkham Ridge trail and ascends through open areas burned by the Red Mountain Fire in 2006. Then, the trail leaves the fire area behind and descends into the upper portions of Gates Creek. Finally, you'll climb up the drainage to the high point where you'll meet up with the Wyoming-Fir Creek trail, which also saw fire activity during the Red Mountain Fire.
