“A horse trail that fords Bacon Rind Creek, Gallatin River, and Fan Creek and joins Fawn Pass Trail.”— Tom Carter
From the large parking area, the trail crosses Bacon Rind Creek and then Highway 191. It then fords the Gallatin River just below its confluence with Fan Creek. The trail continues along Fan Creek .3 miles and fords it as well, before joining the main Fawn Pass Trail at the 1.4-mile mark.
Runners can avoid all these fords by starting at the main Fawn Pass Trailhead.
