This trail takes the eastern approach to the Wilderness, climbing up the Middle Fork of Lytle Creek through the heart of the wilderness to Icehouse Saddle. You start in semi-arid chaparral, progress upward through belts of big-cone Douglas-fir, yucca, sugar pine, and Jeffrey pine, and end in the cool high country of lodgepole pine and white fir. The trail can be reached by turning west on Middle Fork Road Google Map (Forest Road 2N58) 2 miles north of the Lytle Creek Ranger Station Google Map and following the dirt road 2 1/2 miles. There is hiking trail here.


(Edit) The above description is for a hiking trail that starts at the end of Forest Road 2N58, the road by itself is short (2 1/2 mile) easy and runs along the north side of the middle fork, the view is OK, there are couple places for picnic where the family can enjoy the creek, there are restrooms 1/2 way through it and at the end of the road.
