A wilderness route linking Avalanche Creek and Carbonate Creek via the West Fork of Avalanche Creek. This route links the Carbonate Creek Trail with Avalanche Creek, offering a little-used corridor for backpackers. It is no longer officially maintained and has lots of downed timber at its lower end. There are no cairns or blazes to follow, and although there is a well-defined trail tread in some places, cross-country navigation skills will be needed in others. The trail is described from south to north not only because the route is less strenuous in this direction, but also because the way is much easier to find when approached from Avalanche Pass.
