The Jack Creek Trail, a well-constructed path with a tread 1 to 2 feet wide, goes directly up the left side of Jack Creek. Use is moderate, mostly horse packers. The trail climbs steadily, but moderately, through open slopes and scattered timber. Behind you to the north are the rugged, nearly bare slopes of sprawling Carter Mountain with scattered patches of trees and badlands. Highlights: A good overnight loop that can also serve as a base camp for numerous explorations. Great views of Carter Mountain, Francs Peaks, Irish Rock, and the vast Washakie country to the west of the Greybull drainage.
