Need to Know

Need windproof jacket, hat, and warm clothes. Weather can turn in 5 minutes. This is a low-use, primitive trail. If you twist an ankle or break a leg no one is going to find you.

Flora & Fauna

Deer and elk. Initial section of trail crosses a creek bed with tall shrubs and grasses, a wonderful area for bear to surprise you.
