This is a wild and rugged trail that travels to a seldom visited area of the Lone Peak Wilderness. The trail climbs steeply to circumnavigate Box Elder Peak, and then culminates at the Deer Creek-Dry Creek trail #043.

Challenging but incredible views, beautiful wilderness. Still quite a bit of snow, so it's easy to lose the trail, but I made it to the canyon bottom (the end as described here). Fun snow play there.
