Description

This short trail offers spectacular views of the meadows at Moraine Park. It connects the Moraine - Tuxedo Cutoff in the east to the Cub Lake Trail in the west. The trail is mostly easygoing as it skirts the border of the forest and meadow.

Flora & Fauna

Keep an eye out for the meadow's largest visitors: moose and elk.
