Description

A gorgeous trail climbing steeply alongside Bear Creek. It has great views and amazing seclusion.

This trail will take you from the lower section of High Drive to Trail 667, the Jones Park area, Pipeline Trail, and Seven Bridges. Numerous connections and distances are possible if you're willing to do the work to get up it.

Flora & Fauna

Example: You'll find vast wildflowers featuring Rocky Mountain Columbine from July-September. Marmots are easy to spot, and moose if you're lucky!
