This trail follows an old dozer grade from the foothills of the Bitterroot Range to a sprawling reservoir berthed at the headwaters of Bass Creek. The trail has a good deal to offer in terms of scenic interest, even though an earthen dam at Bass Lake slightly tempers its overall attractiveness. Connections with routes leading into the adjacent Kootenai Creek and South Fork drainages provide for extended trip possibilities via their respective passes. Highlights: Attractive canyon scenery and a large mountain reservoir.
