Family Friendly Older kids can certainly handle this trail's gentle grades and short length.

Description

This trail begins at a fork where you can pick the main Mule Deer Trail (the lower of the two) or the alternate. This upper alternate trail is mostly flat or downhill as it passes through trees along a dirt and slightly rocky path to finish at the Ole Barn Knoll parking area.

Flora & Fauna

Visit this area in the autumn to enjoy beautiful yellow aspen leaves.
