Driving Directions

This trail consists of the East Boyd Trail #703 and Glover Trail #704, connected by roads at the top and the bottom. It is possible to make this a loop trail by either going up East Boyd Trail (trailhead facilities reconstructed in 2000, with accessible stock unloading ramp) then traveling approximately one mile on the primitive Coolwater Road #317, then down Glover Trail, then down the Selway River Road approximately 3.5 miles to the Boyd Creek Trailhead, or by traveling in the opposite direction. The trail passes over Round Top Mountain (elevation 6807') which provides views of the Selway Crags and the Bitterroot Mountain Range on the Idaho/Montana border. Feed for stock is limited along the entire length of this trail.
