Description

This trail begins off the Sheepnose trailhead off of Forest Service road 830 -- this road is rough and narrow and high clearance is recommended, though it is possible in a passenger car if you go excruciatingly slow. It primarily a two track road in the beginning that narrows to singletrack the farther it goes in. It's predominately used by hikers and equestrians. It provides some complete solitude being so far back into the Bearlodge Ranger District. There are no higher summits to the east of the mountain, so it has some fantastic vistas from the top that a camera cannot capture.

In the off chance you'll encounter Mountain Lion, Bobcat, Eagles, Falcons, Turkeys, Rough Grouse, Mule and Whitetail Deer, and Elk among many other creatures. The Forest Service leases this land as pasture to ranchers, so you may encounter cows along the drive and while on the trail.
