A narrow tread, steep side slopes, and rocky, rugged terrain make this a challenging trail. The first access point is 1 mile east from West Creek on Trail No. 130. The trail climbs steeply south for 1.5 miles, through a dense second-growth forest, to Horseshoe Ridge. A fire lookout was once located on the northwestern end of the 3,495-foot summit. Continuing east on the ridge, the trail then intersects Road 5700.320. From Horseshoe Ridge the trail drops steeply into Siouxon Canyon, passing through huckleberries and bear grass. The trail rejoins Trail No. 130 approximately 3 miles past West Creek.
On Horseshoe Ridge bear grass and huckleberries dominate the vegetation. Views on a clear day include: Huffman Peak, Siouxon Canyon, and the West Point burn.
Not recommended for horses or mountain bikes because of very steep side slopes.
