Great Alpine single track. A couple punchy climbs but nothing too intense or long. Mostly in the trees. Can be ridden as an out and back going either direction (but starting on the north end is probably the best approach, or you could shuttle from the top of willow creek trail and add this trail to the end.
Trail head at the north end can be accessed by following Fox Road out of town to the West until it takes a hard 90 degree turn to the South. The trailhead is right a that turn. On the south end the trail starts at the Palisades Campground (at the end of palisades campground road). Start up the trail out of the camp ground and there is almost immediately an intersection. The left/straight fork will take you up willow creek trail, and the right fork is the palisades trail. Another option is to start at the top of the willow creek trail which is on the north side of the road roughly 90% of the way to red lodge mtn resort.

|We rode as out and back. However, i recorded the track starting from the north end. The trail's north end has been extended from how TF has it...|
