Make sure you don't mix up deadhorse loop with this looong trail that doesn't really lead anywhere and the views are meager at best. Deadhorse loop is a quick, short loop mostly along a meandering creek (pretty cool). Deadhorse trail is when you don't hang a right off the access road (loop starts about 100yds from parking), and continue on the make-shift road/trail. It essentially just ends after several switchbacks along a creek, way up into the middle of nowhere (unless I zigged when I shoulda zagged). On my way back down, about a mile and a half from the trailhead I encountered a couple asking "is this trail supposed to loop around somewhere?"--they missed the loop turnoff as well..
Great place to snowshoe. Nice loop trail .1-30-1999
