This is an extreamely nice trail in the alpine forest. I incorporated this trail with the bear jaw trail which made for an excellent day ride. Where the two trails intersect (at the top) is a fairly likley place to see a bear).. On the way down I encountered several elk which made the ride even more enjoyable
