Trail Overview

This a short spur trail from the Middle Fork Shoshone Creek Trail that can be used as an easy bail out back to Oakley Rogerson Road and the Fifth Fork Trailhead. It climbs all the way out of the valley from the main trail and goes past a campsite and a cow trough. It's mostly in sagebrush and at the top goes into aspen trees. It's a really easy bail-out with only a few embedded rocks in the trail, and no major obstacles. The entrance to the spur from the main trail is unmarked, but there is a pinch-point gate and trail marker at the top.
