A more rugged option to Overwhich Falls.

Description

Probably the least known trail on Warm Springs Ridge, yet it has the alpine meadows of Warm Springs Ridge Trail #177. There are plenty of switchbacks, although not as many as Fire Creek Trail #404 or Porcupine Creek Trail #205. A great, more rugged alternative to Colter Creek that deserves to be used more that it is.
