Great high alpine descent route; connects with Buffalo or Rabbit Ears Passes

Overview

Description

Fish Creek Falls (USFS Trail #1102) starts at a junction with Wyoming Trail and Mountain View. The upper end of the route is easier, rolling through forest and open meadows on a gradual descent.

The lower reaches of the trail are more rocky and technical, resulting in some challenging (sometimes hike-a-bike) sections.

Fish Creek Falls is often ridden as a shuttle, connecting with the Wyoming Trail from either Buffalo or Rabbit Ears Passes.
