“The less popular way to Pitamakan Pass through trees with a couple of views.”

A little overgrown at the beginning by the trail by the entrance station.
This less traveled trail is an alternate route to get to the Pitamakan Pass Trail
. It starts out in a dense, moist forest of aspen, lodgepole, and thimbleberry just outside of the Two Medicine Entrance. It tends to be a bit overgrown at the start, but as it gains elevation, the forest changes to a drier lodgepole forest. As it rounds a ridge of Spot Mountain, it gets into some meadows that give some brief views of the stunning Rising Wolf.
Once past that ridge, and in the Dry Fork drainage, it levels off again and wanders through an airy lodgepole pine forest and along the seasonal Dry Fork Creek, eventually crossing it to join up with the Pitamakan Pass Trail
