The first section of trail meanders through the woods and along the lake shore to a viewpoint where Mt. Rose is visible. The trail then turns and begins to climb to a junction with a lake access trail (keep right). From here the trail follows an abandoned and overgrown road to a campsite near the Dry Creek crossing. Once you cross the log foot bridge you will bear to the right and begin to climb steeply before entering an old growth forest. The trail continues to climb until the pass between Dry Mountain and Prospect Ridge. At this point the trail levels out and descends to Forest Service road 2353-200.
There are no facilities at the trailhead. Water and toilets are available at Staircase Campground in the Olympic National Park.
