The Jolly Creek Trail begins at Middle Fork Teanaway Trail #1393 and ends at Jolly Mountain Trail #1307.
From the west (top) end: the trail leaves Jolly Mountain Trail 1307 and descends very sharply (35% grade) into the upper basin of Jolly Creek. It has several switchbacks until it crosses Jolly Creek to the north. From here it descends steadily to the junction with Middle Fork Teanaway 1393. This trail is extremely steep at the upper end and is very rugged and eroded in the basin area. The lower end is fairly good.
Access from either Jolly Mountain Trail 1307, or the end of Forest Road 4315 and Sasse Ridge Trail 1340.
