Wildrose Meadow Professional Review and Guide

"An out-and-back day hike to a pretty spring with plenty of wildflowers. This trail doesn’t get much use, so you’re guaranteed solitude, but neither does it get much maintenance, so you must stay alert and keep your map ready in case of confusion. There are ducks and blazes here and there, but the piñon pines beside the trail do their best to heal over any injuries to their bark, so the blazes are sometimes indistinct. Occasionally clumps of prickly pear cactus remind you that this is semi-desert country; the ground is rocky and sandy, with sparse understory to hold water. Rainfall and snowmelt run off rapidly and carve gullies that are hard to distinguish from trail, especially since some gullies and trails are meant to coincide. It’s a short, fun, and interesting route-finding adventure with lots of unusual wildflowers."
