Trail Description
About this trail
Trail #1173. This trail begins very near to Lynx Pass. It climbs for the first mile and then crosses Forest Road 263. This is the highest point of the trail, at 9400 feet. From this point the trail goes downhill along Tepee Creek for its duration, in a southeasterly direction. You will encounter mainly lodgepole pine. At mile 3.2, the trail crosses an old logging road. This road was used to remove timber from the Tepee-Rock Timber sale which closed in 1981. The road is now closed to avoid wildlife disturbance. The trail continues on the north side of Tepee Creek. Along the trail, you will find good brook trout fishing and beaver ponds. There is a tough crossing of downed logs at Rock Creek just at the east end of the trail. Take care when crossing as spring run-off can complicate this. source: fs.usda.gov

Review: Excellent X Country adventure type trail. We cut off the 5 miles of 2X and made it a shuttle run. Ended up being 12 miles mostly downhill and flat (not a fast or steep down hill more of a trend) with a couple of killer climbs before meeting back up and crossing 263. There you catch about one more mile of singletrack down to the first road switch back where we parked. Very fun. I gave it a 4 due to the climbing at the end.
