Swan Lake, MT
This trail links the South Fork and White River valleys via a high route that features outstanding vistas of the surrounding country. The trail begins by ascending the valley of Helen Creek, a steep canyon that burned in 1994, razing 9,000 acres of timber. Through the snags, you will have fine views of the surrounding ridges as well as the peaks at the valley’s head. After several miles, a pointed hill rises above the valley, signifying the confluence of the two forks of Helen Creek.
