Trail in the area near Hamilton,
“A more technical option to Overwhich Falls.”

3.25.1 milesKilometers 292’89 m Ascent 7,865’2,397 m High 9% Avg Grade (5°)
Singletrack Type -1,163’-355 m Descent 6,783’2,068 m Low 27% Max Grade (15°)
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 technical alternative to Colter Creek that deserves to be ridden more that it is.
