Description

From its intersection with Crystal Creek Trail #4021, Jagg Creek Trail continues heading upward with a couple great views of the Crystal Creek landslide to the south. After a tough sustained climb, the trail levels off just before the two-mile mark as it leisurely cuts through stretches of forest with the occasional meadow.

Just before the three-mile mark, the trail enters a beautiful open meadow with a snaking stretch of Jagg Creek. This makes for a great spot to dip your toes or throw a few flies, though the mosquitoes can be rough if there's no breeze. Through this stretch, there may be a couple trails to follow but keep a southern trajectory and you'll find yourself back on the true trail without much trouble.

Continue past the turnoff for the Teepee Creek Trail around the 3.3-mile mark, into more flat, creekside meadow past a couple backcountry horse camps. Look for the clear signage at a couple forks in the trail. At the 4.3-mile mark, the trail heads east into the trees away from the creek valley with some moderate climbing around the east side of a ridge that separates The Six Lakes. Use the Six Lakes Trail to access these beautiful backcountry lakes for a nice camping opportunity.

With one final dogleg left (east) turn, the trail continues upward leaving Jagg Creek to join Bear Cabin Creek with views of Black Peak (11,638') to the south. The trail ends at Big Cow Creek Trail with access to Goosewing Creek Trail #4082, Grizzly Basin, and the Gros Ventre River Trail #4081.
