“Along with countless wildlife, the aspen groves and cottonwood trees compliment the mountain alpine very pleasantly.”— Jeffrey Shanor
This run is not very well marked as it is commonly used by ranchers checking livestock that live along the foothills of the mountains. Be respectful of the surrounding land and stay on the trail. Keep dogs under control and please avoid driving on wet roads.
You can park either before the bridge or after the bridge at the beginning of the trail. Turn left once you arrive at Little Goose Ranch and the end of the trail is approximately 3 miles down the road where you'll be welcomed by a clear view of the rest of the canyon.
