Went out to see what this trail was about. We were a bit late for most of the wildflower show, but I bet it was really beautiful in June. There were still fleabanes and salsifies plus who can argue about that wonderful ponderosa pine aroma. The trail is really silty so for comfort you could wear shoe gators. Very easy trail with almost no elevation gain unless you cut over the Kaule trail and take the view ridge trail to the interpretive trail to return to the lodge.

Sunny side out and view ridge trail back was really beautiful. Went in late afternoon so the sun setting made for some really beautiful fall colors.
You do have to watch your step as the horseback rides use this trail also. Lots of fertile dirt!
View ridge to Kraule on the way back was my favorite part of the hike
