A great wooded trail! Well marked and well kept.

Description

This loop features a wooded trail that wasn't too crowded but very well kept. Grades were moderate for very short spurts, and the whole trail was well marked. Views of St. Mary Lake can be had throughout the trail, but most of the time was spent in trees. There is a huge parking lot at trailhead with plenty of spaces.

Flora & Fauna

Plenty of trees.
