This relatively new trail offers an easy hike through fine alpine forest, ending at a scenic meadow. The hike is on the southwest slopes of the San Francisco Peaks in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness. The trail descends gradually eastward across the slopes of Fremont Peak, traversing several beautiful aspen-lined meadows. Watch for elk; at times there are more elk tracks than human tracks on the trail.

We are novice hikers. This trail offered enough challenge with elevation changes and distance that we feel we got a great workout. The elevation is just right.
