This singletrack trail is used primarily for a downhill run. The trail goes through burn areas with many dead trees, open meadows, and lodgepole pine forest. It is a fun downhill run with some short uphill segments. There are several sharp switchbacks on the western end. If you do a loop on this trail, the Colter Creek Trail makes an excellent uphill return. You can also do a longer run by going past Overwich Falls and out Warm Springs Creek Trail for a longer shuttle ride.

Access Info

The typical eastern end access for this trail is via the Warm Springs Ridge Trail 177 which can be accessed via road from Lost Trail Pass in the summer.
