A long but easy backpack drops from Minam Lake down the Minam River to the Horse Ranch, this is a main trail through the western part of Eagle Cap Wilderness. Many other trails connect with Upper Minam River Trail. From the junction the trail heads south a few yards to the junction with Blue Lake Trail (1673A). Blue Lake Trail turns off to the right (west). A small stream runs down the trail for a short distance 0.3 mile past Blue Lake Trail junction. There is another small creek crossing with a bridge 0.8 mile from the junction. The trail crosses another creek 325 yards after crossing the bridge.
