The North Hills trail splits from the Sunlight trail at the point it turns west and passes through an opening in the fence. It follows the fence line to the south gradually climbing up to meet the Mountain View trail. Then the trail drops into a gully and begins another gradual climb. At the crest of this climb the Missoula Valley comes into view and the trail becomes increasingly rocky. The trail swings west leaving the fence line and descends down a rocky section ending at the Cherry Gulch trail.
