“A trail through airy aspen groves and dense patches of wildflowers bursting with color.”— Janice Shepherd
The trail alternates between pleasant meadows and airy aspen forests. The green-topped tall aspens give nice shade to the trail while still allowing distant views into their depths. Below the trees is a carpet of green shrubs and in places a wide variety of wildflowers. Birds chatter away all around you. A babbling creek adds to the serenity of the area.
But you are sharing the trail with the occasional motorcycle. At least they tend to pass by quickly and the natural sounds soon return. Be alert to their approach so that you can find low impact spots to safely step off the trail.
If you set up a car shuttle this run can be combined with Telephone Trail by running a stretch of very quiet FS #406 two-track road, also called Smith Point Road.
