Trail Overview

This is an exciting adventure with some great views, trail obstacles, and two lakes that had fish rising to get the numerous bugs, due to the approaching thunderstorm when we were there. Be aware, this trail does cross numerous streams/bog obstacles that can be very challenging depending upon recent weather. One of the crossings was a deep muddy bog with a vertical dirt wall almost two feet high. You will be traveling through a mountain meadow-like area with grasses, lakes, and some great views down into the large migratory bird refuge area that borders the Montana/Idaho line. While not specifically marked, it is assumed that this trail, like the adjoining trails, is restricted from vehicular access April-Jul for elk calving.
