This trail leaves Forest Road 3347 and follows an old cat road to Forest Road 5325 at Soldiers Camp. This trail is on Iron Mountain and is very dry, with no water. Vegetation includes rhododendrons, azaleas, and California darlingtonia. Trees are Port-incense cedar Orford cedar and white fir, with some pine at higher elevation. There are three high points on the ridge that the trail follows, the southernmost of which used to be a forest service lookout, and it is accessed by a short side trail. The view from there is excellent.
