Chinese Wall Trail #1803 begins near the summit of Ripple Creek Pass. After 1 mile, the trail enters the Flat Tops Wilderness. It then continues 2 miles to Picket Pin Park where it meets the Picket Pin-Lily Pond Trail #1811. The trail skirts the park for .5 mile, then climbs 1 mile to the ridge that divides the White River and Williams Fork drainages.

The West Lost Lake Trail #1103 drops into the Lost Lakes from the top of the ridge. From here it climbs another 2 miles to the top of the Lost Lakes Peaks (11,800'). The trail continues across rolling tundra, where it is marked by wooden posts and rock cairns. After 4.5 miles, it meets the Devil's Causeway Trail, #1803.3. The Causeway, 1 mile to the north, is a narrow strip of land connecting two major portions of the Flat Tops. It is flanked by 60' to 80' cliffs with steep talus slopes dropping 600' to 800' into the drainage below. The rough and rocky three-foot-wide crest can be crossed on foot, but it is impassable for horses. The trail then heads south 7 miles across an alpine meadow and ends at the Island Lakes Trail #1842.
