A good easy trail for most folks. We went about 3 miles with a toddler in a pack and two dogs. First several miles are very rocky and were pretty washed out from recent rains. Lots of horse poop from pack horses heading back and forth from the lodge. We ran across a Mama Moose and her Baby just off the trail in some pretty moosy water. Thankfully, some horse riders came up and were able to get her a little further off the trail so we could pass. Lots of flowers though and the St. Joe is always gorgeous. Oh, it was reported at the trail that there had been recent bear activity further up the trail, I don't think we went far enough to even get into that.
