This trail also crosses into these trailhead areas:
Starting the Curtis Creek campground, the trail winds its way into the cove containing Slick Falls Branch on an old logging road, and then begins its signature climb. This is one steep trail! There are a few switchbacks, but they don't minimize the grade much at all. After passing Slick Falls on the right - which is nearly impossible to get a good view of - the trail curves across a ridge, where there is a small clearing and junction of old roads. Keep to the right here. The trail then levels out some, but only briefly. The steepest part of the climb is yet to come.
After resuming the super-steep climb on the old logging road system, the trail passes a large rock face on the left, then transitions into a purpose-built trail which is much more comfortable to hike. This section is narrower, and passes through switchbacks, easing the grade somewhat. After a pronounced turn to the north, the trail pops out of the denser forest onto the ridge called Snook's Nose.
