Trail begins with an easy climb to a high scenic ridge above beautiful Deer Lake. The route then descends into rugged Gold Valley and heads north past mines and lakes. To modify the trip, you can head north from Waypoint 02 to a scenic campground above Gold Lake or just exit back to Gold Lake Highway. Another option is to head north from Waypoint 02 and immediately turn left to run difficult Snake Lake, Trail #9. Unlicensed vehicles must stop at Waypoint 06.
