Trail offers beautiful views of Gibson Reservoir and surrounding mountains. First 1-2 miles of trail runs near summer homes but soon after becomes very isolated. Trail is in very poor condition with numerous trees blocking path. Also, after approximately 4 miles, the trail becomes indistinguishable with the various game trails throughout the area. Signs are almost totally not present, so getting lost would be quite

Very beautiful scenic hike. Trail starts at a very established trail head. In order to get to the Mortimer Gulch trail you must cross the road and then follow the road for about a mile. At this point there is a poorly marked intersection. The two lower paths take you to private property/ back down to the road. The upper trail (left hand trail when coming from trail head), is marked with some sort of montana wilderness sign. This trail takes you back along the bottom of the ridge, behind the private property, up the gulch. This far left trail originally looks like like it heads strait for the rocky ridge, but will soon veer right and remains in the forest. The views after 3 miles are spectacular! Once you get out of the forest you hike in beautiful wildflower meadows. Unfortunately there are houses along the whole trail. We hiked about 4 miles up and when we stoped we had amazing views up the gulch, and down towards the reservoir, but there was a house right there that made the view a lot less primitive.
