    Table of contents

    The remote Firebrand Pass Trail grants hikers the opportunity to marvel at wildlife and enjoy beautiful views of Calf Robe and Red Crow mountains in solitude. In the summer months, wildflowers encompass the fields and compliment the mountains surrounding them. The layout of Firebrand Pass can produce strong winds, so a windbreaker is advised!

    Route Description for Firebrand Pass Trail

    The hike through Firebrand Pass Trail is a remote and lightly trafficked area where you can enjoy the views in solitude. You will begin your journey in an open field with Calf Robe Mountain directly in front of you in the distance.

    As you continue your hike on Firebrand Pass, you will travel through a dense forest filled with pine trees and will emerge into fields full of wildflowers in the summer months. After taking in the sights of Calf Robe and Red Crow Mountains, you will advance to the top of the pass, where you can witness the incredible views of Skeleton Mountain and the Ole Creek drainage area. When you are ready, you can go back the way you came.
