A 4x4 or careful driving is needed for the last couple of miles of the road.

Runner Notes

Lots of loose cobbles.

Description

From the parking lot you enter the Big Timber Creek valley.

The trail heads up mostly at railroad grade. Your first landmark along the way is the turn-off for Big Timber Falls Trail #330 at about a third of a mile.

Keep winding your way up the trail and about a mile in you cross the creek on a solid bridge. The walls of the valley have started to squeeze in at this point.

Cross the creek again at a nice, open area at two miles.

A powerful climb leads to some flatter hiking where the trail ends at the intersection of the Sweet Grass Trail and Blue Lake Trail #118 .

Flora & Fauna

The Crazy Mountains has a healthy herd of mountain goats and is home to wolverine.
