“A combination of lodgepole pines, aspens, and epic meadows with fantastic views.”— Jake Bramante
Once down on the valley floor, meadows become more common and include impressive views of the surrounding rocky peaks. The trail alternates between various combinations of large meadows, the Belly River, and pine and aspen forests with little streams trickling down from Lee Ridge.
As you approach the Belly River Ranger Station, the trail is predominately amazing meadows with mountains jutting up from wooded foothills.
