Awesome trail for a quickie before dinner. A little overgrown at the halfway mark but just bushwhack a short while and you’ll find yourself. Loved all the water, wildflowers, and views! Stay Wild!

Beautiful trail. Plenty of water. Amazing views all along. Absolutely loved this trail. At the signpost at the turnaround of the loop, I crossed paths with a good sized brown bear coming across a field of wild flowers. Scared the bejeezus out if me. I was making noise but obviously not loud or often enough. He went the other way when I started hollering and walking backwards slowly. Would do this trail again in a heartbeat. It connects to other trails too.
