One of the few point-to-point hikes entirely within the Montana portion of the Selway- Bitterroot Wilderness, this trek also provides an alternate approach into the Bass Lake area. Aside from the outbound Bass Creek Trail, the route as a whole is lightly used and is best suited for an excursion of two or three nights—an itinerary that may be easily extended if you want to take advantage of a side trip to Lappi or the South Fork Lakes, or even continue into the Kootenai Creek drainage.

As the guide said it is hard to follow the trail. Mainly because their is no trail head marked. If there was ever a trail head it was many many years ago. The fishing is probably really great because nobody has been there in years, so there is no pressure. I did not mark the lat. and long. on the guide I printed from the internet or I could have found it with my GPS. I will be sure to do that the next time I go on a hike so I don't drive 17 miles on a forest road and can not find something. Fair road, great scenery.
