Used this to access the Bitterroot - Rock Creek Divide Trail (313) rather than the main trailhead. The start of the other trail is not nearly as enjoyable.

Head up the doubletrack across from the Crystal Creek Campground. The doubletrack quickly reverts to a pleasant singletrack climb along the creek until reaching the Easthouse trail (313). The climb up to this junction is a sustained moderate 2.25 mile climb with the occasional short push.

Access Info

Drive to the top of Skalkaho Pass and then over the top to the Crystal Creek Campground. The trail is across the road.
