Certainly a beautiful hike that is quite easy for anyone. We didn't realize that this would be 9 miles of nearly all meadow hiking. We also anticipated at least one bear siting considering its listed as a significant grizzly habitat. Unfortunately we didn't see much more than some beautiful birds. This is a nice family hike.
This was a nice, easy to moderate trail in a very peaceful valley. The washed out Pelican Creek bridge is picturesque and there are some nice hills to sit and enjoy your lunch while watching the valley.
