Features Views

System is closed from mid-December through mid-April due to snowfall and Spring runoff conditions.

Description

This trail meanders across a big open meadow to the foothills and drainages of a high ridge. There is a lot of rolling topography to keep things interesting. It intersects the Sawmill Trail at 0.6 mi, and has a viewpoint spur trail on the right at 3 mi. with a challenging climb and spectacular distant views to the north and west.
