Kids will love this route, which features a short exploration of a lush old-growth forest and leads to a pretty waterfall in a forest dell. The route stays well within the cool shade of the forest, with nice views of the Carbon River as well as Ipsut Creek. This area is frequented by both black-tailed deer and Rocky Mountain elk, so keep an eye open and you might see one or more of the big beasts browsing through the woods or sipping from the waterways.
