Trail shared by Mikhaila Redovian

A gradual climb brings visitors to a junction with the Stuart Falls Trail, and the PCT.

Description

Located near the southern border of the park, this trail is best accessed from Hwy 62, near the Lodgepole Picnic Area. It's probably best to park at the picnic area, and then look for the trailhead just a few hundred feet south, and on the other side of the road.

Though the slope is gentle, visitors will find themselves climbing most of the way to the end of this trail. Along the way, will skirt a few larger bluffs, and work its way through Lodgepole forests. A little over 1.5 miles into this one, the butte will fall behind, and you'll be treated with views of a large flat meadow. The trees will open up somewhat here, so stop to take in the view!

Once you crest the final small ridgeline, visitors will face a choice. The Stuart Falls Trail continues to the west, and the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) branches off to the north. If three miles (one-way!) is far enough, you can turn around and enjoy a gentle descent, retracing your footsteps the way that you came.

Flora & Fauna

Lodgepole forests shade much of the trail, and other subalpine plants and animals can be seen off trail.
