This trail climbs up steep switchbacks towards Angry Mountain. After entering the Goat Rocks Wilderness, it reaches an open ridge and the grade continues until the trail ends on Lily Basin Trail #86. The highest point on Angry Mountain is 6,049 feet. The name might have come from people hiking the extremely steep ridgeline on the south slope of the mountain. Or the name might refer to the frequent storm clouds surrounding the summit. Wilderness permits are required when entering a Wilderness area. Permits are free and self issued at trailheads.  There is no camping or water access.
