Another challenging hike in the Weminuche Wilderness. The first few miles of the trail have previously been described with the Spanish name Huerto: garden-like. Reaching a meadow at 2.4-miles soon pass a junction with Indian Creek Trail No. 588 from the east but continue to a crossing of Williams Creek and begin ascending more assertively in a walled canyon that bends and turns. At 7.4-miles the Williams Lake Trail No 664 veers to the northeast. Stay west, soon climbing multiple switchbacks, passing a small lake on the east and joining the Continental Divide Trail No. 813.
