Be sure to take a map and plan on closely noting the directional signs along the route. There are several junctions along this short loop, and if you’re enjoying the scenery too thoroughly (which would be easy), you might get on the wrong trail. The trail starts out as a service road (it has a locked gate and is only occasionally used by vehicles). Along this stretch of trail, you can enjoy outstanding views of Colter Bay, with Mount Moran providing a classic backdrop. At the end of the dirt road, you reach the first junction, where the loop section of this trip begins. Go right (south), unless you decide to take the route in reverse. The trail turns into a well-used singletrack but is still in excellent shape.
