This hike features easy access and the cool, alpine forest and meadows of the Dry Lake Hills. From the crest of Dry Lake Hills there are good views of San Francisco Mountain to the north. From the trailhead, follow the Sunset Trail as it crosses the gentle slope above Schultz Tank through a beautiful ponderosa pine and aspen forest. The Little Elden Trail goes left (northeast) at 0.2 mile; continue straight (southeast) on the Sunset Trail. The trail enters a small drainage and turns uphill. Climbing steadily but at a moderate grade, the trail stays on the right (west) side of the drainage for more than a mile.
