This hike follows a rather steep and little-used trail up Ousel Peak, which boasts views of the northern peaks of the Flathead Range and Glacier National Park on the far side of the Middle Fork of the Flathead. Travelers should expect to cross a few deadfalls and brushy spots; horse travel is not recommended here. There is a route across the summit of Ousel Peak to link up with Trail 388, which descends toward Hungry Horse Reservoir. This route is not marked and should be attempted only by experienced route finders.
