TRAIL ENDS: On the Wyoming Range National Recreation Trail #048, at Cheese Pass.

ATTRACTIONS: Although the trail is steep after the first mile it is a quick way to the WRNRT, with excellent big game habitat and alpine meadows.

Grazing and water are available at the junction with the North Fork and just below Cheese Pass, where there are also good places to camp.

Turn west on Fish Creek and park in any of the large open areas before the road goes into the trees. Continue west to the Fish Creek trailhead
