This trail was rerouted in 2015 and climbs steadily through alternating forest and ridgetop meadow for just over 4 miles and 1500'. Spectacular mountain and valley views abound. The new trail surface is fairly wide, well graded and smooth if horse traffic has been kind. Expect a couple of creek crossings and scattered switchbacks (all rideable though some are challenging). The new section ends in a nice meadow, while the older, more primitive trail (not reviewed here) continues up for another two miles toward Sacajawea Peak. The old trail eventually intersects the Bridger Foothills trail. Access road may be impassable if very wet and passes through private land, so please respect private property and park at the trailhead at road end. High clearance vehicle recommended.

Access Info

Dry up to the creek and then sporadic snow patches after. A few more sunny weeks and it will be good all the way to the meadow

Trail is in excellent condition, especially considering that the road was too muddy to even get to the trailhead two weeks ago

Dry almost all the way. You hit snow just shy of 4 miles up but until then, it is perfect!

 Trail is smooth and tacky. Wildflowers are incredible right now.
