The trail drops 2,100 feet in elevation as it passes through oak woodlands and areas of pine. There is a spring about midway from Cedros Saddle to Manzana Creek. From Cedros Saddle, the trail also goes south two miles to Zaca Lake, a privately-owned lake and resort where refreshments may be obtained.
