Vehicles need to be shuttled, leaving one at the Forest Service corrals off Mtn. 99 where the trail ends, and driving the other to the Vista. The first ascent begins just north of Mosquito Meadow and is about 3/4 of a mile long, followed by a long descent to Big Meadow. Once crossing Salmon Creek, the route continues on Cherry Hill Road (22S12) for about two miles, which is the second ascent. This route will crest out on top of Big Meadow Pass where it picks up the trail on the eastside of the road. The trail continues for about 1/2 mile where the third ascent begins. This ascent is one mile long, followed by along descent to Cannell Meadow. From there the trail continues with three miles of riding pleasure before Pine Flat is reached. Here the nine mile descent called the Cannell Plunge begins. This trail travels through several meadows and offers a variety of scenic vistas.
