From Kinky Creek Trailhead, proceed to the Dry Fork/River Trail/Clear Creek intersection. Carefully follow the Dry Fork trail to Brewster Lake. From Brewster, navigate up the limestone ramps to the right, staying below the unnamed peak. Veer right at the top; there are great views of the Tetons. From there, carefully follow the GPS coordinates to Big Balls of Cowtown trail. There are two routes that are hard to see from above; one is ledgy with exposure. The other is very small but easy on scree and dirt. It is mostly blocked from view from below. Navigate to Shoal Lake and out via off-trail and the Shoal Lake trail. Note: this route may not be possible if there is snow present at elevation. Suggest late-summer visits. Show more
