General Information: This is mostly a high ridge route varying from lodge pole pine forests to open fir and spruce, to open meadow and alpine areas up and over Windy Peak. The trail meets trail #533 near the north side of Sunny Pass. There are outstanding views from near Windy Peak. A short side trail leads to the old lookout site on the summit. There are junctions with the Clutch Creek Trail #343, Basin Creek #360 and Boundary Trail #533, making several loop trips possible. This trail should be considered more difficult for stock due to tread slippage on steep side slopes. Sections of the trail near Windy Peak often do not melt until late July.
