This short but steep trail connects Ben Point Trail with Upper Little Minam River Trail. The trail heads south-southwest from the junction with Ben Point Trail. Two hundred yards from the junction is a path to the right. This path connects with the Ben Point Trail a short distance to the northwest. A small stream crossing (6,560 ft.) is 0.25 mile past the path. Next to this stream is about the only reasonable campsite along this trail. The trail comes out of the timber onto an open hillside 350 yards past the stream. The view from here looks down (south) into the Little Minam River Canyon.
