The trail leads past Hell Canyon and Pawnee Lake. It intersects the Buchanan Pass Trail and the Crater Lake Trail.
Snow is normally present on the trail above the Crater Lake-Cascade junction, and Pawnee Lake is frozen until the end of June. The pass trail is generally free of snow by mid-July. After crossing the pass, the trail can be followed down to Lake Isabelle and Long Lake, on the east side of the Divide.
Directions: From Granby, Follow Highway 40 west to Highway 34. Go north on Hwy 34 to Forest Road 125, on the south end of Lake Granby. Follow 125 east to the Monarch Lake Trailhead.
