“A wide open marshy meadow with hydrothermal features, bison, and a faint trail.”— Jake Bramante
The trail crosses the largest meadow, follows along some trees, then works its way up a meadow in some trees which gradually necks down to just a trail through some trees where it eventually joins up with the Sentinel Meadows Trail.
At this junction, a bonus side trip is to follow along the trees to stay out of the wet grass as you head west. Look for an old log pathway and use that as a guide to head out to the old Queen's Laundry. Queen's Laundry was to be a bath house for visitors, but was never completed. The log remains exist near a couple of beautiful pools.
