Upper Oldham Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A hike through cool Douglas-fir forest that climbs the west slopes of Elden Mountain to an alpine meadow and a viewpoint overlooking volcanic peaks and the Painted Desert. The trail, which is not shown on the topographic map, starts up a northwest-facing canyon through a cool, dense Douglas-fir and quaking aspen forest.

Soon it switchbacks to the left and ascends the slope via several more switchbacks. You’ll have occasional views of the beautiful forest on the north slopes of Elden Mountain. The climb ends abruptly when the trail emerges into Oldham Park, an alpine meadow on the summit ridge of the mountain."
