Bear on the trail. We did the Patty’s Flat side (riverview) and crossed highway 66 on the western end of that trail. Proceeded up the hill and ran into a small grey/brown bear. Seemed curious about us but didn’t do anything threatening. We turned back.

Really enjoy this trail had a bit of everything river, forest and views.lots of wild flowers and even found wild strawberry. There was a bear warning in the area as there had been a sighting but we had bear spray with us.

Park at the Patty’s Flat campground day parking lot. Then walk across HWY66, the trailhead is just opposite the campground entrance. Easy and quite a variety of wild flowers along the trail. The Riverview loop is parallel to the Elbow Valley river and one can have a good glimpse of the river from above.

A great variety of riverside, peak views, thick forest and meadow. Moderate difficulty- 2 hours total to complete with a 20 min break at the river hiking moderate pace and intensity. Beautiful!

Interesting trail with a lot of different terrain and views. It would’ve earned 5 stars except for hearing the off-road vehicles for a portion of the hike.

I love this trail! It has a big up hill at the beginning then it is relatively moderate after that. The fall colors have already started which is beautiful and the trail along the river is stunning.

Great for hiking with Tiny humans. Do the valley first (CCW loop), then leave yourself lots of time to play along the river on your way back to the parking lot. Strava Activity: https://www.strava.com/activities/1721265507?segment_created=true
