DESCRIPTION: The trailhead is at the midpoint of the trail, not at
either end. From the trailhead you may head steeply downhill at
first, with the grade easing up, for 1.9 miles to the Middle Fork
Teanaway Trail 1393 near the river. Or you may head uphill,
crossing the rugged headwall of Way Cr. and ending at the
junction with Jungle Creek Trail 1383.1. This trail is mostly in
good condition with a few steep pitches. There is no water on
the upper portion and little water on the lower part later in the
season, except for the Middle Fork Teanaway.
