Beautiful trail on a late spring day. We viewed waterfalls, numerous spring wildflowers, one twisted and one huge aspen. And we found a small number of morels.

At first this trail was hard to to figure out which one was it as in the begain ing several met up at the start and the trails are not labeled. After getting on the right one, it take you through nature with loads of trees and wildlife. Saw several deer and some great overlooks. This is a good trail to get you warmed up to the longer trails you can take.
