We haven’t spent much time in the mountains to the west of Missoula. I have heard of Cache Creek for some time, so we decided to make the trip this past Sunday. The drive to the trailhead from Lolo is great as you travel west on Highway 12, take the Fish Creek Road from around 12 miles to the trailhead. The trail itself is super-easy, like E-A-S-Y. But, butterflies and scenery surrounded us as we hike the flat trail for 3 miles in. This trail would be absolutely perfect for hikers with children or an early-season fitness hike.
