This is one of the main trail segments that make up the Beaver Meadows Trail System. Like many of the other trails in the system, this one meanders through a beautiful meadow that is ripe with wildflowers in the early summer. Keep your eyes peeled for large game such as elk and mule deer feeding in the meadows.
