7.1 mile loop with side trip to top of Windy Mountain. The hike starts at Thain Creek Campground and travels north for 1,000 feet to the first trail junction. Continue straight along Tr 431, heading east, for a 2.3-mile climb along Briggs Creek. During this stretch, you'll be treated to intermittent views of Highwood Baldy, the tallest peak in the Highwood Mountains. After cresting a small saddle at mile 2.5, turn left onto Trail 454 for a rolling traverse to Windy Mountain Pass. If you have time to spare, take the scenic detour at the top of the pass to the 5,998-foot summit of Windy Mountain (you won't regret the view). From here, it's a 2.7-mile descent along Thain Creek to the trailhead.Show more

This is an interesting hike because of it's history. During the travels of Lewis and Clark, their guide Sacagawea had fallen ill at the south portage camp located near the spring. The water had medicinal qualities. It was given to Sacagawea and her health returned. The gravel trail is narrow but visible, however, there are many offshoots that people have created of the years that make staying on the main trail difficult.   Thanks to the gravel this trail is less prone to becoming muddy than other options in the area. The trail forks shortly after starting, stay left unless you want to take a detour to a plaque and overlook. At the small loop on the tip of this hike you will be at the Belt Creek Overlook. No bikes allowed on this trail.Show more
