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.
SETTING: Open rocky hillsides, large timber, valley bottom, riparian zone, ridgetops.
