Want to ride this trail. You have two choices. Park near the end Sleeping Child Rd where it intersects with Black Tail Rd and Two Bear Rd and gravel grind up Black Tail Rd and then FS 273 for about 14 miles and make a huge loop along with the South Fork Sleeping Child #84 and Sleeping Child Trail #105. If you want to shuttle drop and vehicle here and drive up. Plan on 30 to 45 minutes each way to get to the trailhead. I suppose an out and back is possible; I've never tried it. OK, there is a third option; park at the trailhead, ride the trail and piece together some backroads to return. If you want to do that, I assume you are the adventurous type, so grab some maps and figure it out.

So from the last paragraph you have probably figured out that just getting to the trailhead takes a commitment. If this trail didn't begin and end in the middle of nowhere it would probably be one of the more popular rides in the Bitterroot with it's great views and non-technical riding. There are no big climbs or descents, just mostly pleasant rolling terrain with a few punchy climbs
