The trail is multi-use. Hikers, bikers, cross country skiers, and snowshoers will find approximately 4.5 miles of trail beginning in Camp Sherman across from Sternberg Lane, passing through the Deschutes Land Trust's Metolius Preserve, crossing FS Road 12 and upgrade to Highway 20 were the trail goes under the new bridge, and then along Lake Creek to Suttle Lake. A portion of the trail is available also for equestrian access to the Windigo Trail.
