From the lower trailhead, Cliff Point Trail (436) climbs a sidehill through a series of three switchbacks for 2.5 miles to Cliff Point, then follows the ridgeline between Little North Fork/Big Creek and Gold Creek drainages to the upper trailhead on Road 751. Both trails have adequate space for parking. Potential dispersed campsites can be found along the ridge, but water is not available. Due to mountain pine beetles, dead trees are falling; therefore, it is not recommended the trail be used on windy days.
