Autumn Creek

Autumn Creek Professional Review and Guide

"The trail begins at the historic Marias Pass, the route through the mountains for which the Lewis and Clark Expedition searched unsuccessfully. The 5,200-foot pass is one of the lowest routes over the Continental Divide.

The trail travels toward Little Dog Mountain in a lodgepole forest near the Continental Divide. Once in the trees, the trail is a gentle single track. Three Bear Lake at .66 mile is a good turn-around point for beginners; the trail becomes more challenging after this point."

"The trail is best skied December through March when snow piles up 6 feet deep. As a summer trail, Autumn Creek is poorly maintained and has several challenging creek crossings-no bridges exist along this trail.

The park service requests that snowshoers "maintain separate tracks for skiing and showshoeing wherever possible" so the ski tracks are not spoiled-the route is wide enough for snowshoeing next to ski tracks."
