: This trail is usually combined with Wolftone Creek Rd. (#102) and Deer Creek (#158) to make a clockwise loop offering great views and a 5 mile single-track descent down Curran Gulch. The traverse from Wolftoneto Curran Gulch crosses both sides of the 8,000-foot ridge and is lush withwildflowers well into August. The first half of theroute follows several sections of old mining roads and is not the most pristineoption for hikers. It is, however,a relatively short 2.5-mile hike from the end of Wolftone Road (#102) to pt.7922 where a short scramble leads to panoramic views of the Pioneer Mountains. The five-mile trip up Curran Gulch topt. 7824 is a better hiking route to enjoy the wildflowers and southern views.
Directions: Drive north from downtown Hailey to Deer Creek Road (2.8 mi). Turn left and continue past the pavement to the Wolftone junction (8.2 mi).
