The trailhead is located near Oyster Creek about three-quarters of a mile east of Silver Lake. The trail travels through a forested landscape winding through unique volcanic rock outcroppings. Small meadows near the top of the trail are filled with wildflowers in mid-summer. Views of Thimble Peak and Silver Lake are beautiful. A portion of this trail is contained within the Thunder Mountain-Horse Canyon Loop Trail. NOTE: Only the Horse Canyon portion of the trail is open to OHV (motorcycle) use. Please watch for motorbikes and horses. Cycling and OHV use is not premitted beyond the Mokelumne Wilderness border.
