If you are adventurous (dumb) enough to being doing a loop on the Trout Creek Recreation Trail using the 322 as the road climb, take the extra time to go check out the Minton Peak Lookout tower. If you can get a reservation, it also makes a very nice base camp to start the ride from or explore other trails in the area.
