This is a great way to access the Beaver Meadows area and do some wildlife viewing! If you're camping in Moraine Park, check this trail out!
This is one of the main trail segments that make up the Beaver Meadows Trail System. Like many of the other trails in the system, this one meanders through a beautiful meadow that is ripe with wildflowers in the early summer. Keep your eyes peeled for large game such as elk and mule deer feeding in the meadows.
