This trail begins at the Hill Creek Trailhead, along the South Fork of the White River. Starting up the Peltier Lake Trail, you are on an oak brush covered hillside that gradually changes to aspen as you climb the winding trail, 3 1/2 miles to Peltier Lake. Leaving Peltier Lake, you follow the contour three miles to Bailey Lake through aspen stands, sagebrush, and grass covered slopes. The Oyster Lake Trail junction is 6 1/2 miles from the trailhead, near Bailey Lake.
