Along this ride's 6.79-mile length, you won't get much in the way of views, but it makes for a nice woodsy excursion. The gradients are easy, and the forest is a pleasing mixture of lodgepole pine, Douglas fir, willow, and aspen. The Central Rockies Wolf Project uses this area to live-trap wolves for tracking as part of its exciting research project. Once the wolves have been fitted with radio collars or GPS (global positioning system) transceivers, they can be tracked, and scientists can learn more about the movement and habits of this fragile population.
