Additional Details:
Use of this trail is light. Most visitors to Erickson Basin hike in from the Upper Setting Road, which is shorter and easier. ..Map Corrections: About 1/2 mile west of North Erickson Lake, the trail is shown skirting the east and south side of a wet meadow, then proceeding west and south to the pass between Shingle Creek and Erickson Basin. This is not correct. In fact, the trail skirts the east side of the meadow, then climbs a series of switchbacks to the southeast, passing the southwest corner of North Erickson Lake, then joining the Lakes Country and Upper Setting Trails about 1/4 mile north of South Erickson Lake.
Basic Directions
Trail begins at a junction with the Smith-Morehouse Trail, 2.5 miles southeast of the Ledgefork Trailhead. The trail terminates at a junction with the Lakes Country Trail (#066) and the Upper Setting Trail (#156), 1/4 mile north of South Erickson Lake.
