No Dogs · Birding · Lake · River/Creek · Spring · Wildflowers
OverviewThis trail is primarily used by the horse concessionaire. The trail breaks off of the Apgar Mountain Horse Loop (South) trail after a nice overlook of McDonald Creek and begins climbing up through a mix of burned and unburned forest. The trail is a nice trail, but can have downfall in the spring. The grade is steady at first, but this one levels off as it travels through the continued mix of forests which make for nice forest birding. It comes to the loop that wraps around up the hillside.
Flora & FaunaForest flowers such as arnica in the spring and fireweed in early summer. Many forest birds such as wrens, chickadees, and woodpeckers. Potential for deer and the occasional bear.
