This trail goes through old-growth timber and meadows, eventually ending at 2.4-acre Pass Lake. This nine-foot-deep lake offers fair fishing.

The route beyond the lake to Falls Creek is not maintained and vanishes in the brush after a half mile. Very old maps may have record of this trail, but the way to Falls Creek is recommended only for experienced hikers and navigators.
