The Maurice Creek Trail heads up the west flank of Mount Maurice from Rock Creek Canyon. The trail connects Rock Creek Resort, five miles south of Red Lodge, to the Line Creek Plateau. The route parallels but stays high above Maurice Creek, passing the creek’s headwaters along the way. The forested path gains 3,200 feet en route to the expansive alpine plateau. The hike can be combined with the Corral Creek Trail (Hike 27) for a one-way, 1 3-mile shuttle hike.

Hellroaring Plateau is a fabulous day hike! The views of the Beartooth Pass are wonderful. Hiking around the many alpine lakes is heavenly. Wild flowers abound even in mid August. Be advised the weather can and does change abuptly. We had sun, clouds, rain showers, hail, gusting winds, fog, and back to clear. Take your time on the long drive up, must have 4x4.
