Description [Suggest Changes]

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.
