This trail was so scenic. It winds back and forth along the creek bed. We spent A wonderful leisure afternoon on it. We came across a bison enjoying the sunshine. Bison, bear,elk and mule deer scat as well. Prepare to cross water.

The bridge across the creek is washed out. Wish we had known this before hand. We decided to follow the creek up to see if we could find an easy place to cross but was not able to. The trail is hard to follow even from the trail head and not well marked. It is beautiful but without being able to cross the creek it is scary as you have to walk in high bushes and there are moose signs all over the place. We turned around after we came to a wall of tree/bushes we could not see into. If you hick this trail, make sure to make lots of noise and bring shoes you can cross a creek in.
