The Little Thompson Gulch Trail single track trail provides access from Wagonhammer Creek to Burns Gulch Trails, Big and Little Silverlead Trails, Lewis and Clark Trails as well as points beyond. It is a moderately steep climb leaving Wagonhammer and there will be some short hike a bike sections unless you are really fit. The climb is a good workout. You will be rewarded though on the way back down. The flora is primarily grass and sagebrush with scattered ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir trees. Watch your speed on the way down and be on the lookout for horsemen or hikers.
