Trail Overview

This route begins and ends off the Verde Creek Road. The route is mainly gravel with loose rock which makes up a one-vehicle wide road. There are parts of the route where passing another vehicle is possible. Most of the route has very steep embankments that pass through areas of burnt-out timber. The route begins around 4000' and makes its way to 5400'. Most of the route is very scenic looking high over the Lolo National Forest. St. John's Wort is plentiful along the route.
