From the Rockpile Road Trail the trail starts by following along the top of a ridge overlooking a valley that hold Crystal Lake and a powerline. At the end of the ridge the trail enters the woods before looping right and dropping down off the ridge. The trail then continues to turn right and turns back into a rocky, ravine that follows along the bottom of the ridge. After a short distance the trail pops up out of the ravine and into the powerlines right-of-way on the Crystal Lake Trail.

Ridge on Its Gotta Go Trail

The stream in the ravine comes from Frying Pan Lake. The lake, the stream and the ravine follow along a geological fault line.
