Mint Wash passes through a mixed forest of ponderosa pine and alligator juniper as it as it travels toward Granite Basin Lake. The trail crosses a creek several times. Although the creek is usually dry, its banks are lined with dense vegetation that is nourished by occasional flows. This short trail provides access to other Granite Basin trails.
