The trail, which begins at Loop B of Canyon Point Campground, provides the forest visitor with a unique experience. The trail leaves the developed setting of the campground quickly behind and traverses to the lip of a sinkhole and then descends steeply to the bottom.

Upon entering the sinkhole, the environment changes dramatically. Thick with tall Ponderosa pine, aspen, Douglas and white firs, the sinkhole also harbors a variety of flowers and shrubbery.
