Trail 192 begins at the parking lot of Icehouse CCC Recreation Site and runs southwest across Forest Road (FR) 112. There is a fork at mile 0.2 where Icehouse Trail 198 begins on the right. Stay left on Telephone Trail 192 and continue to Dog House Springs where Telephone Trail 192 once again meets Icehouse Trail 198. The two run together for about 200 feet past the remains of an old cabin. Telephone Trail 192 then turns east and climbs out of Icehouse Canyon. The trail runs up a narrow ridge along an underground power and telephone line offering scenic views of Globe and Miami. It then drops into Upper Sixshooter Canyon where it meets Sixshooter Canyon Trail 197 near the ruins of an old sawmill. At this point, if you turn right on Sixshooter Trail 197 and go 0.9 mile, you will end up at the Ferndell Spring Trailhead, or turn left onto Sixshooter Trail 197 for an additional 3.8 miles and return to the Icehouse CCC Recreation Site.
