Awesome extension to the Mill Creek trail. Rocky and rooty up top, and fast and flowy down low. Overshooting switchbacks could be fatal. Techy but cleanable as a climb.

Access Info

Ride up or shuttle Mormon peak road. After the Mill creek intersection continue up. After taking in the view from Carlton Ridge, turn around for one of the longest continual descents in Montana.
