On this short interpretive hike, you can learn about the natural evolution that takes place after a forest fire. This short, easy, interpretive hike is perfect for stretching those driving legs; it’s good for all fitness levels. The trail consists of two loops: an upper walk through the charred lodgepole pine forest and a lower interpretive trail. Both can be completed in under thirty minutes Beware, though, staying so close to the highway has its drawbacks; traffic noise is apparent regardless of where you are on this trail. There are washrooms in the parking area.
