Trail Description

This trail passes between rolling meadows and canopied forests. Mountain views are good, especially from the summit of Big Huckleberry Mountain. Wildflowers are the star attraction: lupine, balsam root, columbine, tiger lily, and more! Be prepared for a roller coaster terrain with the heart-racing uphill climbs and knee-beating downhill slopes.
