Extremely strenuous ascents and descents, with sparse water sources for over half the segment. This bold segment of the GDT follows the Continental Divide along crests and over several prominent summits. The route starts as a faint trail before relying on cross-country travel. If you are an experienced hiker, accustomed to some scrambling and routefinding, you will want to take the alternative route for the spectacular crestline views along Barnaby Ridge. The main route leaves the crest of the Continental Divide and descends the West Castle River valley.
