After reading about this land conservation project I decided to check it out. Nice trail system overall and fairly moderate as you hike along a ridge. I went on a Tuesday and there was zero traffic, but I don't know how crowded it gets on the weekends. I hiked all the trails at once starting with a big loop to the left and the Peshastin Lookout followed by Boundary Butte to the right. Yellow balsamroot was everywhere, but especially on the far north section of the Wapiti Way trail where you will walk through a whole field of it on the ridge top. Less crowded alternative to Icicle Ridge.
