Take the trail down and turn right at the road. Some tall burned trees will be close by on your right.
Further up the road on the left hand side is the continuation of the Silver Moccasin Trail. There is no sign. The last time I was there the junction was as shown below.
Close to halfway to the West Fork Trail Camp, the grade becomes less steep and the trail follows a stream that feeds into the San Gabriel River.
The trail ends at the San Gabriel River.
Across the river is the West Fork Trail Camp with picnic tables and outhouse style toilet.
