Trail Overview

An easy 4-mile trail at just over 6000 feet, crossing high mountain meadows and forests. Our 75" SXS fit easily. It's beautiful scenery with lots of potential for wildlife. This trail loops back to the left branch of the Bigfoot Creek to Hay Creek Trail. Great areas for tent camping and picnics.From Highway 69 in Boulder, MT, take North Whitetail Road (399) into the high country. Staging is easy once you cross into the Deerlodge National Forest. From Whitetail Road, go west on State Creek Road. At the first Y in the road, take a right on the right branch of the Bigfoot Creek to Hay Creek trail. A little way up that trail, you find this gem

Difficulty

There are some areas of erosion, some wash-outs, but they're not very deep. The inclines aren't very steep, and the rocks aren't too big. There is one water crossing, and in July it's pretty low. It could definitely be deeper in the earlier spring or summer.
