Need to Know

This isn't an official trail but there is a user created path to follow and the running is super easy with great views the entire time.

Description

Run along the ridge, past a couple false summits for about a mile for stunning views of the Sawtooth Mountains, White Cloud Mountains, and the valley to the south. The run ends at Cape Horn Mountain. From there, you can look down on Collie Lake and its associated drainage.

Even if you don't want to go all the way to Cape Horn Mountain, you'll at least want to run a few hundred feet to the first high point on the ridge to get the views of the Sawtooths and White Clouds, which are hidden from view at the divide.
