Break out the rigid for some smooth flowy fun. This trail is considerably smoother than Wallman (East) and is fast with a few quick switchbacks. The lower portion of this trail was rebuilt in 2016 by the Montana Conservation Corps. They did a great job adding some flow and creating a more sustainable trail.

Access Info

When descending down Spring Gulch take the second left. Or if climbing up Spring take the right. Cross the creek, and it'll be about a 700ft climb to the top. Or climb up Wallman (East) from the corridor.
