    From Timberline Lodge (0.0) - over open slopes to the ridge above Zig-Zag Canyon (2.2) - down through the canyon, over creeks, to Paradise Park (6.1) - you will see Slide Mountain and Rushing Water Creek (7.5) - soon you will cross the Sandy River and head towards Ramona Falls (10.2) - continue towards the Muddy Fork (13.3) which actually requires two stream crossings - then a long series of uphill switchbacks takes you up to McNeil Point from which you will be able to see the Lost Lake Basin - cross McGee Creek (18.3) - when you reach the Cairn Basin Rock Shelter (19.5) you will have two trails to choose from at this point, the right fork is .4 miles shorter and leads you above Eden Park - towards Wy'east Basin (20.4) - reaching Elk Cove Tr. #631 (22.7) you will start to notice the soil and vegitation begin to change as the climat becomes drier - continue along beautiful trail towards Cloud Cap Saddle Campground (27.5) and into the "dry zone" where little grows, fill your water bottles - cross the route's highest point Lambertson Spur 7320' (30.0) - dropping and gaining elevation on the many ridges, across open, rocky slopes, you will go past the junctions of Gnarl Ridge Tr. 652 (32.3) and Newton Creek Tr. 646 (33.7) - cross Clark Creek (34.6) until you get to the White River Crossing (38.3) where you will have to look hard for a good, safe place to cross - from here it is about 2.5 miles of uphill, sandy trail back to Timberline Lodge (40.7)
