Trail is recommend to be done as a shuttle but can be done as an out and
back from trailhead on Fish Creek Road. Shuttle is easiest by parking a
vehicle and the Stagecoach bar or the Gas station in Wilson. This does
have you ride 3 miles of road back to the car after the trail but is easier and
saves time. Driving the 3 miles from Wilson to the End is on a slow 25mph
road. Trail starts about 100 yards from the hwy on the right side of road.
Trail is marked. First segment is the Arrow Trail. Stay on the trail until you
come to what should be your second trail junction. Take the trail to the
right marked Snotel. This will lead you to another junction and sign marked
for Phillips Ridge or Ridge trail head that way and enjoy your descent.
Other variations are when you come to your first junction take a right onto
the Ridge trail. This leads you to the same place with just a little more
climbing than the Snotel trail (about same mileage). The last 1/2 mile
travels through private property that is signed so be respectful. Trails also
abruptly drops you out onto Fish Creek RD so be careful. All is signed well
at the bottom. When you hit Fish Creek road head right back into Wilson.
