“Connects Briggs Creek and Kirby Creek drainages with a steep climb in between.
— Leslie Kehmeier
The Briggs Creek trail connects Briggs Creek and Kirby Creek
drainages. From the Than Creek campground, roll out east up the Briggs Creek drainage. Travel through a mix of forest and open meadows on the north side of the creek. At the upper end, the route will climb steeply to a ridge.
Continue straight at the intersection with Windy Mountain (#454)
and Marie Springs
to descend into the Grant Creek drainage. This part of the route traverses dry hillsides down to the intersection with Kirby Creek
