Start from the Harvey Manning Trailhead, taking the Shangri La Trail to start. After about 0.1 mile you’ll come to the junction for the Tibbett’s Marsh Trail. Turn right here, go for a few hundred feet, then turn left for 0.4 mile.
At the next junction with the Protector Trail, stay right for 0.1 mile. Here you will reach yet another junction. Stay right here as well and the trail will cross over Tibbett’s creek before arriving at the final junction with the Cougar Pass Trail. Stay left here and 0.2 mile later you’ll arrive at the Clay Pit Road, the official end of this trail. Head back the way you came or turn left to check out the old clay pit, then loop back on a different trail.
