Little Horse Trail leaves Chicken Point and descends 0.4 miles in an easy-to-moderate hike to reach the trailhead for Chapel Trail. Chapel Trail traverses the base of the Twin Buttes for 0.7 miles until the Chapel of the Holy Cross is reached. Many rock steps are used on these trails.

View to the north as one leaves Chicken Point at the start of Little Horse Trail.
