Moderate hike to the base of Elk Falls and then continuing to Elk Falls Overlook. Incredible sweeping views of Lion's Head along trail. Pass through meadows, aspen groves, and around Elk Falls Pond. Opportunity to see lots of wildlife. Be aware of bears, mountain lions, and coyotes. Do not feed the wildlife.
