3.5-miles, +1160 ft; From Pipestone Pass TH

This is a pleasant hike along the Continental Divide Trail that begins near the summit of Pipestone Pass (paved, and plowed).  It is also a POTA “2-Fer” (Beaverhead-Deerlodge NF & CDT) if you activate within 100-feet of the CDT.  It is also located on the northern edge of the historic Thompson Park area, which is a unique congressionally designated Municipal Recreation Area that includes much history related to the Milwaukee Road (Railroad).

The trail (CDT) crosses Hwy-2 about 1,000 feet east of the parking area at the top of Pipestone Pass.  You can either park in the parking area, or further down the highway near where the trail crosses.  The crossing (beginning of trail) is just west of the Yellow 50 mph right curve warning sign.  The trail is very well defined and frequently cleared.   The summit is a small pile of rocks at the top of the forested ridge.
