Start this connector from Wagon Road near Colter Bay and head due south through an open meadow. Shortly after crossing Willow Flats Trail
, this longer connector trail enters a mixed forest with cottonwoods and conifers. Continue south-southwest and eventually the trail pops out onto the shore of Swan Lake.
Swan Lake is prime waterfowl and moose sighting territory as well as a perfect vantage point to see the Teton's from, so keep your eyes peeled! From the eastern shore of Swan Lake, the trail heads east and intersects Third Creek Connector
. This intersection provides some of the best views on the trail as it's in a wide open meadow.
Follow the trail east, back into forest, and eventually you'll connect with Second Creek Trail
