The trail is a mix of decomposed granite and shale type rocks. It is a fun descent from the top using Shasta Bally Road
and the Papoose Connector
back toward Sheep Camp. Heading north, you can drop into Boulder Creek Falls and link fire roads to other trails and other waterfalls in the area.
Overall, an awesome trail in the Whiskeytown area.
Shasta Bally Road
is a steep but direct route.
