This trail offers the hiker solitude as well as an excellent opportunity to view wildlife. You will hike through beautiful Aspen groves, sagebrush meadows, and forests of spruce and fir trees before reaching the ridge line of the Williams Fork Range. Approximately 1.7 miles from the trailhead you will come to the Ptarmigan Peak Wilderness boundary. You will enjoy spectacular views of the rugged Gore Range throughout your day. This is also a wonderful trail to view the Aspen trees change color in the fall and is one of the first trails to melt out in the spring and be clear of snow.
