This trail starts at an unimproved parking lot that you can drive most cars to, right at the top of Buck Gulch
It quickly descends through a burn zone, with the same sandy, loose trail surface as much of the area. The scenery is great during the first 1/3 of the trail, as you're descending through the remnants of a burned forest, with open views as a result.
About halfway, you'll descend to a very minor creek crossing (with a makeshift log bridge) in deep forest with a sharp climb out of the creek.
After this, there's more green forest with very little burn remnants, then a short, flat blast through the forest to a big intersection with Strawberry Jack
heading in two directions, and Homestead Trail
