Wilkes Creek Details
Rugged backcountry peak to creek trail with a little something for everyone. Without regular maintenance the middle section can be quite brushy, and needs some tread work. Hang in there and you'll be rewarded at the bottom.
Can be accessed as and out-and-back from Wilkes Cr. TH, or as a shuttled ride via the CC Divde.
Trail clearing in the Dry Creek area is a function of USFS maintenance budgets and MTB Missoula volunteers. Check with the Plains/Thompson Falls Ranger District or MTBM before you go - if this trail hasn't been cleared you're going to have a bad time.
