TRAIL:For the first few miles the trail gently follows Miller Creek, crossing it several times, until the end of the valley where it starts a steep haul up to the ridge top. From ridge the trail traverses the west side of the ridge to meet (.5 mile bellow the summit) the County Line Trail (#1226). There is a camp at this point but no water after the snows melt. To complete the loop continue following the ridge (via #1226 and #1364) to the Iron Bear trail (#1351). After an initial relatively steep descent the Iron Bear trail follows a fairly gentle slope though forest, crossing the creek several times, back to road #9703.
PARKING AND FACILITIES: In addition to roadside parking a pit toilet and dispersed campsites are available.
