5/25. Nice flat walk. The scenery was beautiful. Just a nice relaxing walk. Picnic tables at the beginning of the trail, which would have been nice if we were ready to have lunch.

A nice, flat hike that meanders along the Colorado river. Great views of the valley floor and the Never Summers. I enjoy this walk with the interpretive signage as a break from the more intensive hikes, and it’s usually accessible earlier than some of the other side hikes in the park. No moose in April, 2018, but we did spot fresh tracks and scat.

A wheelchair accessible trail that is a mile round trip on an easy and flat gravel path. It is a beautiful and relaxing stroll along the meandering Colorado River only about 10 miles downstream from the headwaters in the Never Summer Mountains (and 1400 amazing miles from the Gulf of California). There are sweeping views of the Kawuneeche Valley and surrounding mountains. This is also a prime location for viewing wildlife, particularly elk (which we saw in abundance during our visit in late July) and moose.

Very easy trail but great for seeing wildlife! We saw 2 mother moose with their babies! Many stops with information about the area and wildlife.

Nice relaxing walk with informative stops along the way. Yes, it's very easy and short, but if you pass it by because of this, you won't get lucky like we were and see a mother moose and her calf along the way.

Very short and flat hike. Lots of beetle damage but the leaves on the aspens were changing. Didn't see any wildlife except for some trout in the river.

A good trail for snowshoeing in the winter. Went out and was completely alone on the trail. Unfortunately no wildlife, but a great trail nonetheless.

Five stars for a short, level, well maintained out-and-back trail. Great views. We completed this walk in conjunction with a ranger program. Fun for children.

Nice easy walk at the end of the day. Great place to watch sun set and the elk come into the valley in fall.
