Horsethief Falls trailhead
This is where you begin. The trail goes up about 400 ft over .7 miles, leveling off just as you get to the trail junction. One side of the trail post points ahead (east) to Horsethief Falls and Pancake Rocks, the other side points north, labeled with “Ring the Peak.” Take a left, cross the creek and you’re now in the south end of large valley. Looking to the east, you’ll see the bare peak of Sentinel Point (12,500 ft) a little over a mile distant and half a mile higher.
