DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen

This popular non-motorized trail is roughly 11 miles long and eventually connects to the scenic Kootenai Lakes. The narrow trail follows a creek that winds through a steep canyon wall and forms several waterfalls.

According to the Stevensville Ranger District, this trail is open to mountain bikes up to the wilderness line (posted), but it is narrow and due to the scenic views it is very popular with hikers and so it may not be the best choice for mountain bike use.

The staging area offers a vault toilet and a kiosk. The area is open year-round but the best time to visit is during late spring through early fall. For current trail conditions contact the Stevensville Ranger District at (406) 777-5461.
