Trail Overview

Beautiful ridgeline trail running up along the side of the mountain. This is a well-maintained dirt and gravel road that is wide enough in most places for two vehicles to pass. There are a few areas in the curves of the switchbacks that would have small waterfalls or running creeks in spring. All of them have good drainage and should not create any washouts in the trail. The higher up the trail goes the more stunning the views down over the valley become. This trail ends and connects up with two other trails. The Lost Horse Observation Point is a short out and back and well worth the extra stop. Connect up with Hays Creek Moose Creek and take it along the top of the ridge, then hop onto Moose Creek/Old Mine Trail to make a loop trail that will head back down and meet up with the beginning of Lost Horse Ridgeline. There is also access to Coyote Coulee Trail for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking at the very beginning of this trail with a dirt parking lot off to the right. There may not be winter maintenance.
