Starting at the Lake Maloya spillway, the trail climbs steeply through a forest of ponderosa pine and Gamble oak, onto a saddle covered with Aspen and fir, rewarding hikers with spectacular views of the distant Kiowa Hills to the south. The trail then drops down a series of switchbacks to a small valley and finally makes its way back to the starting point.
Elevation along the trail ranges from 7,500 feet to 8,200 feet, and is easiest to hike or bike in a clockwise direction. The trail is open for cross-country skiing during winter.
