Description

Beginning from the eastern side of Willow Flats Trail, Second Creek starts its journey on doubletrack as it winds through this vast marsh and meadow landscape. Just prior to where the doubletrack enters the trees, turn right and the singletrack will begin.

From here, the trail is wide open and flat, giving runners great opportunity for wildlife sightings. Part of this trail runs through an ephemeral creek bed, winding its way along the banks as the views of the Teton Range stay constant. As the creek bed turns south, Second Creek Trail heads north, past an intersection with a Connector trail, and over Third Creek.

From Third Creek, the trail turns north and re-enters the forest. Pass Swan Lake Connector on your left and continue north, through the forest, and follow its jog to the east. This eastward turn takes the trail out of the trees and brings us to the trail's termination at Willow Flats.
