Trail Overview

This is an out-and-back route in the Lolo National Forest. The first right-hand turn takes you to a gate just before a bridge that crosses Bear Creek. The left turn takes you up the west side of the drainage above Bear Creek and provides stunning views of the Bitterroot Mountains. There were several fire rings located in pull-offs several miles up the road and there were also a few junctions with other roads.
