This trail is unmaintained and has no trailhead of its own, but rather is reached by using the Ingalls Creek trail and the rarely used or maintained Etienne Creek trail.

As a stock trail, horse feed can be found in the upper basin, but there is no bridge across Ingalls Creek, requiring a ford, which can be dangerous in high water.
