Saw some moose unexpectedly 5/18/18! Quick little walk on the way down from Rainbow curve.

A short boardwalk with pretty views of the small wetlands area and nearby mountains. The easily-missed pullover is just before you begin the climb up the eastern side of the Trail Ridge Road.

This is a very short walk on a well maintained boardwalk. Hidden Valley Creek winds through this flat area full of bushes and long grasses. Many species of birds frequent this area. This trail is handicapped accessible, too.

Very short boardwalk to a seating area with nice little views. The day we stopped here we had just completed two hikes, so we found it a nice place to relax. I would think little kids would like the boardwalk, but the area won't hold there attention very long. Also great for those with limited mobility.

Decent place for a photo-op if you have small children or a group who need to stretch their legs. It's in RMNP and has an okay view of the mountains, but is otherwise not too impressive.
