“A steep climb leading to some contouring trail and a short descent to the road.”
— Nate Drendel
The Phillips Trail #373 intersects with Crane Mtn Road #498 and the Beardance Trail #76
. This is one of three trails that climbs Crane Mountain. Convenient access by car from Crane Mountain is available 4/1-11/30, otherwise you must access from the Flathead Lake side at the Beardance trailhead (4.4 miles up). This is a multi-use trail used by hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.
