Getting There

From the Verlot Public Service Center 11 miles east of Granite Falls, travel west on the Mountain Loop Highway 3.9 miles to Forest Service road 41. Note: As of 2016, the road is 8.5 miles from here. Past the closure, the rest of these directions must be hiked in order to access this trail.

Turn right (north) on the Tupso Pass Road 41 and continue for 12.5 miles to seldom maintained Forest Service road 4140 on the left. The trail leaves the road shortly after turning off of road 41 and is on the south side of the road.
