Description

This trail climbs through thick evergreen forests with the occasional break for small grassy areas. Flowers of all shapes and colors bloom along the trail in season. You'll also pass a small spring where wild roses grow and an aspen grove lit up like candles when hit by the early morning sun. The summit will provide panoramic views of Bear Mountain on the left, the City of Evergreen, and of course the Rocky Mountains.

This is at or near the end point of the trail. It's high up, very colorful, and obviously beautiful.

There are some glimpses of the final view as you ascend the trail. This is one of those glimpses.
