Iron Peak Trail #1399


From the road, the trail immediately heads up the steep, sparsely forested mountainside in a series of switchbacks. After about 1.5 miles, the grade moderates for 0.5 mile as the trail enters a basin. Then it steepens again and continues switchbacking up through groups of trees and open rocky meadows to the bare ridgetop at approximately the 3-mile point. From this scenic spot, the trail heads downhill into upper Beverly Creek basin, passing through meadows, groups of trees, and bare rocky areas. After 0.5 mile, it ends at the junction with Beverly Turnpike Trail 1391. There is little or no water along this trail aside from Iron Creek at trail’s start and some springs near the end of the trail.
