Description

Use this track to access the Playground and Ross Peak without using Bridger Bowl's lifts or a snowmobile from Batlle Ridge. Park at the closed gate for the North Fork Brackett. Follow the forrest road for an eighth of a mile until it jogs right, continue through the meadow, heading towards Ross Peak. Keep following the creek as you enter the trees. After 2 miles it opens up a lot and you'll be under Ross and the Playground.
