Take the trail down and turn right at the junction with the dirt road below Angeles Crest Highway.
Further up the road on the left-hand side is the continuation of the Silver Moccasin Trail.
The trail begins by descending through burn areas and is exposed. Bring lots of water–especially for the return trip up the canyon. Close to halfway down Shortcut Canyon to West Fork Trail Camp, the grade becomes less steep and the trail follows a stream that feeds into the San Gabriel River.
This section of the trail ends across the San Gabriel River at West Fork Trail Camp.
If coming up the Silver Moccasin Trail from West Fork Trail Camp, go to the west end of the campground to find the trailhead.
