“A trail used by the horse concessionaires that travels up a hillside through an old burn.”— Jake Bramante
Taking a right has you work your way near a feeder stream, then up the hillside. The trail is a little steeper here and filtered views of Lake McDonald are nice, but the silver trees left over from the burn don't make for great photos.
As the trail gets higher, it enters a stretch towards the top of an older forest before traversing and dropping down to more of the same mix of burned and unburned forest and closing the loop.
