“A magnificent march through serene forests introduces visitors to numerous species of edible berries and wildlife.”— Hunter R
Family Friendly While the whole length of the trail may prove too much for children, they can certainly handle a portion of it, and will absolutely love to snack on berries along the way.
While this trail is great to hike in either direction, most people access it from the River Trail out of the Jedediah Smith State Park Campground. While on the trail, expect a mixed tread covered with plenty of needles and gentle grades.
Hit this area in the late afternoon/early evening to admire plentiful sunbeams as they cascade through the trees.
