Verdun Trail #3686

  

From the trailhead, the trail winds up the drainage, becoming progressively steeper. After 0.5 miles, it levels out somewhat, passing through several meadows in the next 0.5 miles before entering more trees. Near the edge of one of these meadows is one of the largest noble firs on the Middle Fork Ranger District, measuring 93 inches in diameter and 219 feet in height.

From here, moderate grades take you around the north side of the mountain, then south up the drainage. The trail crosses a stream just before entering a large meadow, Hell's Half Acre. If you venture a short distance from the meadow, you will be rewarded with a great view of Diamond Peak.
