The trail is rarely completed in its full length. The trail is consistently challenging , and given the variable maintenance of the more remote sections, hiking the full length can take multiple days, and require a multi hour shuttle. Instead, sections are usually used for creating loops, such as between Weasel Creek Trail
and Railroad Creek, or the Critical Mistakes trail.
For those interested in a long-distance adventure, this trail can be combined with the northern portion of the Bitterroot - Rock Creek Divide Trail (313)
and some back roads for nearly 100 miles of solitude from Missoula to the headwaters of the East Fork of the Bitterroot River.
At the south end of the trail, but sure not to hike past Hole in the Wall
or you'll end up in the Anaconda - Pintler Wilderness.
