“A lollipop loop in the Porcupine Creek drainage, open meadows, wildlife, and classic southwest MT landscapes.”
— Phil Hess
Opens to bikes on June 15. Early season conditions can be horse pocked, rougher trail.
This lollipop loop starts at the Porcupine Creek Trailhead. Through the valley it follows doubletrack and braided narrow trails. There are numerous social and horse trails to your left, before USFS signs point left and uphill towards Hidden Lakes and First Creek.
Climb the occasionally rutted singletrack until the first creek crossing, then head right and down to the next junction above the second creek. Turn right and downhill along fast flowing trail back to Porcupine Creek. There's one last steep climb to complete the lollipop, and return to the trailhead.
