Parts of this trail are along a road that was historically used to haul ice to Globe and Miami. Remnants of ice ponds and various water systems can still be seen along the trail.

From Trail 192 from the parking lot of Icehouse C.C.C. Recreation Site southwest across Forest Road 112. Continue for 0.2 mile to a fork where Trail #198 begins. Turn right onto Trail #198 and follow it across Icehouse Creek, then up the other side where the trail follows an old road to the southwest. After 0.5 mile the trail junctions with trail #242 on the right. At mile 2.3 the trail crosses Icehouse Creek near Dog House Spring, which is well shaded. Here the trail joins the Telephone Trail #192 and the two trails run together for about 200 feet past the ruins of an old cabin. Continue upstream crossing the creek several times. At mile 2.6 a trail on the right goes to a spring, while the main trail continues to the left. At mile 4 the trail leaves the drainage and switch backs up to the head of the Upper Icehouse Canyon Trailhead on Forest Road 651. If only hiking one way, going from south to north is recommended.
