"An easy cross-country and trail day hike along Snake Creek in Great Basin National Park. This short trail is worthwhile because it takes you to a tributary of Snake Creek. You’ll be hiking it clockwise. Cross the campground and follow the old road that climbs left (southwest) out of the camp area. Several switchbacks lead to the road’s abrupt end. Now turn right and drop directly downhill, cross-country, to the creek. Cross this waterway, then turn right onto the Dead Lake Trail, an old road, and follow it back to the trailhead. Or you can just follow the creek downhill to the trailhead."
