The South Shore Trail can be alternately accessed through two different starts: The southwest corner of the Swiftcurrent Hotel's upper parking area or from the Service Road to the hotel.
The South Shore Trail initially descends to the valley floor after reaching the Stump Lake. This trail now enters Trail 180, which connects the south shore trail with the trail around Swiftcurrent Lake. Winding around Stump Lake it moves to the eastern shore of Lake Josephine. This trail eventually meets the Piegan Pass and Grinnell Lake Trails.
