A recreation area in the West Absaroka Mountains on the Yellowstone District. The trail is short and the climb is severe. There is also a creek crossing. The downhill is fast and loose over hardpack. The gem in this trail is the views. This is a quick and dirty ride if you just need to get out for an hour.

      Drifting has created an impossible situation unless you are going to snowshoe or ski.

      Great fat biking right now because of the snow shoe traffic. Thank you Snowshoers.

      Very muddy and slippery on the south side of the creek. The rest of the north side is very dry.

      A little moisture going down to the creek but after Crossing it everything is super dry. Be on the lookout for huge piles of fresh horse crap....
