The short cutoff trail connects the Fawn Pass Trail
with the Bighorn Pass
Trail. This valuable connector trail can be used to make a loop hike out of these two important trails.
The cutoff trail leaves the Fawn Pass Trail
, travels south through a low gap in the ridge, then drops 400 feet to join the Bighorn Pass
Trail near the Gallatin River. On the descent, you get nice views of the Gallatin River drainage, both upstream and down.
