The Kinney Creek Trail begins on a gradual slope and follows Kinney Creek through large spruce-fir stands. Within 1/2 mile, the small valley becomes much narrower and the trail becomes much steeper. At this point, camping spots become more limited. The Horseshoe Lake Trail, #23, takes off to the southeast shortly after reaching the Byers Peak Wilderness boundary. The end of the trail provides access to Lake Evelyn and St. Louis Divide-Jones Pass trails. Elk are commonly seen on the upper part of the trail.
