From the Vulcan Lake trailhead, the path travels along a road that once led to chrome mines near here; then, in 0.25 mile, it begins a 0.5-mile climb up a slope of tawny talus and outcrops, the dunnage of a collision between the North American continent with the Klamath microcontinent and seafloor about 130 million years ago.
