This stream-bottom route provides a relatively short out-and-back day hike into a forested canyon and alongside a clear mountain stream overlooked by towering granite spires. The trail is somewhat more challenging than other streamside trails in the Bitterroots: It makes four successive crossings of Trapper Creek, encounters numerous exposed roots and fallen trees, and negotiates several exposed bedrock segments with outsloping tread that may prove hazardous for stock travel when icy. The trail is not maintained on an annual basis but receives significant stock use. Highlights: A lightly used stream-bottom trail with several creek crossings and cascades.
