“A great trail that connects to some of the best trails in the area.”— Brian Smith
This trail starts off as an old road following Game Creek. It is mostly open with nice views of the open slopes above. The trail winds through willows and pine forests. There are a variety of songbirds in this area during the summer months.
The trail eventually turns into singletrack as it gently rolls along a mellow grade up the drainage. There are several beaver dams in these areas and if lucky you'll catch a glimpse of some in the early morning or at dusk.
Game Creek Trail then begins to climb after the junction with the West Game Creek Trail. It climbs through sagebrush and aspen and pine forest patches until eventually reaching the saddle with the Cache Creek drainage. In the summer, the wildflowers are stunning in this area.
From here, the trail descends through thick pine forest down to the Cache Creek Trail.
