The Oh-Be-Joyful Trail #836 begins at the southeast forest boundary at Oh-Be-Joyful Trailhead and ends at the Daisy Pass Trail #404. After the first mile it enters the Raggeds Wilderness as it travels west paralleling Oh-Be-Joyful Creek its entire length. It ascends along an old two track for the first 2 miles eventually becoming a single path traveling through dense spruce/fir forest. When the trail enters a long meadow the surrounding mountain peaks become visible with Schuylkill Mountain raising 12,146 feet in the north and Oh-Be-Joyful Peak raising 12,420 feet in the west. Due to the abundance of moisture and fertile basins along this trail in the spring and early summer, wildflowers are abundant. Look for our State flower the Columbine; other species include Indian Paintbrush and Avalanche Lilies.
