The Senia Creek Trail climbs from West Fork Canyon to Red Lodge Creek Plateau between Grass Mountain and Bare Mountain. The vistas from this high altitude plateau are stunning. The trail crosses the plateau and connects with trails to the east to the East Rosebud drainage and northward down into the West Red Lodge Creek drainage near the town of Luther. This hike switchbacks up the forested southern flank of Bare Mountain, then crosses the alpine plateau and descends 400 feet to tree-lined West Red Lodge Creek, which is fed by snowfields atop the plateau. This hike may be combined with the West Red Lodge Creek Trail (Hike 1 3) for a 1 2-mile shuttle hike. Bring warm clothing and be prepared for changes in weather.
