From Hwy 35 it's going to be a push for most of us up to one of the best views of Flathead Lake. That's a great out and back that way.
From The Crane Road the trail starts out as a steep climb but only for a short distance then the trail drops and climbs several times. Mauzie Creek is past half-way to the view point. From the view point you can ride down to Hwy 35 to your shuttle rig or ride back the way from which you came. Any way you ride this trail you're gonna like it.
