Trail Overview

Paiute Side Trail 53 connects Dry Creek Road (FS 40183) to Monroe Mountain Rd (FS 40068) on the east, just south of Upper Box Creek Reservoir. It's a nice full-width shortcut trail to cross between Manning Meadows Reservoir and Upper Box Creek. This trail has some erosion due to run-off, and in places, the erosion is right in the middle of the trail. There are some rocks, but it's not a hard trail. You go by another spring-fed pond, which increases the likelihood of seeing wildlife here.


This trail is rutted and eroded in places with loose rocks, but is not difficult.
