Every manage drainage out of the Bitterroots has a trail leading back to these areas.

Your view to the East has an unbroken view of the Sapphire Mountains and the CB Ranch a 23,000± acre Ranch. Elk, deer, bear, moose, turkey and all sorts of additional wild life call this ranch and surrounding area home.
