The trail along Colt Killed Creek offers easy hiking with lots of small dips and rises over its length. It traverses several checkerboard sections that will likely be acquired by the USFS in the next several years as part of the Upper Lochsa Land Exchange. Depending on how far you want to walk, the hike can be treated as an out-and-back from Colt Killed Creek Trailhead; as a point-to-point to the Colt Creek Trailhead (described below); or even as the first segment of a longer point-to-point hike to the Bear Creek or Big Creek Trailheads on the Montana side of the Bitterroots.
