Standard Creek Trail - Libby

Standard Creek Trail #116 climbs gently for the first mile, then climbs steeply. The end of the trail provides spectacular views of Upper Libby Creek, Elephant Peak, and the south Cabinet Mountains Wilderness. This is an excellent horseback opportunity and also makes a good overnight hike. Recommended season is spring through fall, light use, and moderate in difficulty.
