    This trail is closer to 28 miles than 25. Great multi day hike.

    Started out at the Athens big fork trail head at the upper left side of the map, and went counter clockwise which led to doing the most elevation on the first day. I would recommend this. We did 8 miles, 12 miles, and 7 miles through 3 days/2 nights. Bring a good water filter and water shoes for the water crossings.

    Just completed the loop counter-clockwise from the northwest trail-head where Athens-Big Fork meets Little Missouri Trail (2020-06-10 to 12). Lots of tree cover and plenty of clear running water in all of the creeks. Abundant campsites. Great views. Would love to do it again in the fall with our dogs. Tons of trash! Pack! It! Out! FFS. I expect to see trash left in camps that can be reached easily from the roads, but I really expected better from fellow backpackers. There were piles of trash most of the back-country fire pits. Filled all of my spare bags within the first 15 miles.

    This trail provides lots of shade and clean water throughout. Beautiful views with sections of the trail varying from moderate to difficult.
