Trail Overview

The route begins on a gravel road that is plenty wide for two vehicles to pass. The route will make a gradual climb from 4800'-6400'. Some areas of the route have been recently logged with large areas of new growth. There is a large flora of Bear Grass in the higher elevations in the early summer. The route is very scenic looking into the Northern and Eastern parts of the Lolo National Forest. A late spring snow melt could stop you from completing the route. Offline Maps will need to be loaded, as a lack of cell service in some areas.

Obstructed
Deep Snow
Trail was wide open and clear all the way till the 6100' level where we ran into to much snow to proceed. The snow is on the shady side of the mountain trail so will more than likely remain for another week or two till we get some good warm weather.
