Perma-grin, North woods and Rick's basin loops make for a great hike to get out and enjoy the alpine scenery and views of the Teton valley. The singletrack is smooth.
As you start the Rick's Basin loop, Perma-grin starts off to your right. A nice hike out the doubletrack ski road from Blackfoot ski lift will end up with a great view of the Leigh Creek drainage and the fields of wildflowers in Rick's basin.The trail is smooth and grades well down through the aspens. The trail will end back towards the beginning of Rick's basin loop which you can continue on and hike a bigger loop.
