Malcom Tank is a great cool down stop for hiker dogs.

Features Wildflowers

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

Description

A great alternative for hikers with dogs during hot weather, Malcom Tank is a dependable cool down stop. The trail descends from upper Plush Trail through Ponderosa forest and then down an intimate little drainage to connect with lower Plush Trail again. Look for delicate purple iris flowers in late spring and early summer.
