Description

Windy Mountain Trail (#454) starts just off of Thain Creek Trail on the north side of Thain Creek campground. The route climbs steadily up Thane Creek drainage before turning toward the southern flanks of Windy Mountain.

The route steepens as it climbs to just below the craggy peak and then traverses around the southeast side before turning south. There are two gradual descents punctuated by a short, steep climb before reaching Marie Springs trail.

Windy Mountain (#454) trail has great views of the surrounding Highwood Mountains as well as beautiful wildflowers in season. The trail itself isn't overly technical, with a bit of loose rock mixed with hard-packed soil.
