Description

A steadily climbing trail connecting the Buffalo Horn Trail with the Gallatin Crest Trail and to Porcupine Creek Trail as well as providing a destination stop at Ramshorn Lake. This trail follows a wooded coniferous valley topped by the craggy headwall of Ramshorn Peak.

Hikers will be delighted by the scenic views into the Gallatin Valley as well as the flora and fauna. The trail will occasionally be shared with mountain bikers, motorcycles, and equestrian users.
