Stop and take a peak at the water below to your left as much as possible, the views are great and you catch some amazing unexpected glimpses through the trees. Stop at the camp grounds and sit aloft a nice flat rock providing amazing views above and below. If you continue on, the terrain begins to vary- reminded me of something out of Lord of the Rings ! So surreal and beautiful. Of course going on October 1st made for some great leaf color changing action as well.
This trail offers some great views of the Big and Little Belt Mountains and follows closely along what appears to be an old logging road. The area appears to get heavy ATV traffic, with riders using their ATVs for the first 3-4 miles, and hiking the remainder to Tenderfoot River. The trail is wide but a bit rocky in many areas. The last mile is seriously steep and footing can be tough.
Fantastic trail with sweeping views of Rocky Mountain front range to the west and the Great Plains to the east. Trail climbs steadily and is in decent shape apart from areas where the trail crosses open grassland. In some places the trail disappears nearly completely aside from telltale signs of trampled grass. A short walk from the first saddle to the east reveals a great promontory for views to the east. Continue climbing up to where the trail dead ends at Blindhorse Creek. At the dead end, walk left to the crest of a hill, where you'll be treated to an "amphitheater" of Rocky Mountains sweeping more than 180 degrees.
Today it was 90* outside and I had to work this morning so I didn't get on the trail until noon. The trail travels through private property and parallels a dirt road for most of the private section. This trail is well used! I decided to nickname it The Dearborn Highway. For some distance it is a narrow two track. There are a couple of areas that look like well used camping areas. When I arrived at Devils Glenn, I just wanted to jump in and go for a swim in the deep clear swirling pools. Being that I was hiking farther in I opted out.
