Trail Overview

This is a rocky twisty ridge road. It's open seasonally with a gate near the first bottom switchback. The trail has fantastic views of the Bitterroot Valley and Sapphire range. The trail is loose and rocky; in some spots, rockslides and loose hills could leave large impassable boulders in the way. There are a few deeper transitions and some waterholes from springs that appear to run year-round. Some sections are very narrow, with low trees and steep shelves that drop far to the valley below. If you enjoy camping right along the main trail, there are a few dispersed camping spots. This is a great connector trail with 8-mile trail to make a nice loop. There is full LTE cell service at the top and none in the valley at the bottom.
