Trail Overview

This trail starts out as an easy Forest Service road but gradually gets narrower and steeper the further you go. The last couple of miles are very steep, with extremely tight switchbacks with loose rocks and mild ledges. There is one water crossing that can be deep in the spring and early summer months. Although this road is technically open to full-sized rigs, I wouldn't recommend it for anything bigger than a short wheelbase with a very experienced driver. A SxS, ATV, and dirt bike are much better suited. Summer and Fall are the best times to see this trail as snow can block the trail well past spring.

The difficulty rating is based mostly on steep grades, tight switch backs, and dangerous exposure in places. The loose rock can also add to the difficulty.

Access Description

The easiest way to find it is turn off of Hwy 2 East of Libby onto West Fisher River Road FS231. From there go left on FS2332 then right on FS6746. Near the end of FS6746, you will turn right onto FS5323 which is the Gloria Mine Road but not marked. There is also great camping or parking at Oscar Miller Campground or Lake Creek Campground.
