Map + Directions
Follow the directions to the Highland Trail and continue up the trail approximately 0.8 miles to the first main drainage, just before you start the climb up to Tells Peak. A primitive cow trail follows up the west side of the drainage in a northeast direction. The trail intersects an old road approximately 0.4 miles up the drainage and continues north to northeasterly to Shadow Lake at a steady grade of about fifteen to twenty percent. This trail is rough and a topographic map and compass are recommended.
