Hell’s Hole Trail to Prior Creek Trail:

From the junction with the Hell’s Hole Trail – Trail #268, the Lilley Park Trail leads west through the mature ponderosa forest. The tread quickly becomes difficult to follow in places here, so pay attention. Close to the junction with Prior Creek Trail – Trail #56, the Lilley Park Trail nears the rim of the canyon before entering a small gully that at the end of May was green and filled with lupine.

There is a sign nailed to a ponerosa pine marking the junction, but it is otherwise difficult to discern.
