This trail is a continuation of Trapper Creek Trail No. 192.1. However, Trail No. 192.2 is Hiker Only. The trail runs parallel with the wilderness boundary. After crossing a creek, it passes the junction with Soda Peaks Lake Trail #133. Trapper Creek Trail continues its climb through a second-growth forest and intersects with Big Slide Primitive Trail No. 195 and Deer Way Trail No. 209 shortly beyond that. The trail continues, dropping down to Trapper Creek and then crosses Slump Creek.
From there, the trail climbs up from the creeks, intersecting with the west junction of the Deer Way Trail No. 209. A short distance beyond that, it passes the junction with Sunshine (Primitive) Trail No. 198. Still climbing, the trail reaches Cliff Creek viewpoint at 1,900 feet elevation.
The trail keeps climbing and crosses Trapper Creek at 2,200 feet elevation. The steep climb after that crossing is rewarded by a view of Trapper Creek Falls. The trail crosses Trapper Creek again at 3,300 feet elevation, passes the junction with Rim (Primitive) Trail, and ends at the junction with Observation Trail No. 132 just outside the wilderness.
Old-growth forest is present in the lower elevations of Trapper Creek trail. Trapper Creek Falls viewpoint offers a view of the breathtaking 100-foot cascade. The falls is divided by an oval-shaped pool nestled in the black rock face.
