This trail ascends the south slopes of Mount Adams through dry lodgepole pine forest and crosses Shorthorn Creek and Crofton Creek before ending at the Round the Mountain Trail at treeline.
Along the way, the trail passes through brilliant blooms of Beargrass and phlox. Crofton Creek carves a deep ravine as it descends from the high glaciers on Mount Adams.
