The trail begins at the Summit Springs Trailhead and was completed after a 1987 fire destroyed existing trails in the southern portion of the Snow Mountain Wilderness. This loop allows a look at the recovery stage of a fire-ecology area, then leaves the burn to pass a high vista to Mt. Shasta, Mt. Lassen, and the Yolla-Bollys, then down through fire forest and low manzanita to Appletree Camp at the headwaters of Dark Hollow Creek. Compressed ecological zones, unusual plant communities, and the narrow but refreshing corridor of Dark Hollow Creek, make this a varied and highly enjoyable loop.
