This trail is well-maintained and has a steep incline for the first 8 miles with snow on the mountains until mid-summer. The trail intersects the Resurrection Pass Trail at mile 10 making for a possible through hike of 27 miles to the Resurrection South Trailhead and 32 miles to the Resurrection North Trailhead. The dead trees are spruce bark beetle kill and are extremely flammable. There are tent camp sites along the trail. This makes for a good 2 day hike. Moose, wolves, grouse, caribou, wolverine, marmot and ptarmigan are here often and fishing for Dolly Varden is good.
Distance: 10 miles
