Take either Lower Hayes Creek or Upper Hayes Creek to the connector trail and then take the connector through the rock gardens to Camas Creek. Crank back up the other side and then decide whether you want to go clockwise or counter-clockwise. Clockwise gets the climbing over with in a hurry with a steep push to the top of the loop. The climb is followed by a great meadow to recover in and a fun, flowing descent and a gradual climb back to the start.

The counter clockwise-option starts with a fun section of gradually descending flow followed by a good climb up to the upper meadow and a straight shot descent back to the start.

Access Info

Drive up Lost Horse Rd, then take a right on the Camas Lake Rd.

 Great mellow ride in the Bitterroot. Can ride both loops in 2 hours without pushing it!
