This hike is not to be missed in the fall — the aspen are ablaze with fire red and golden yellow. Trail: Initial 2.6 miles, with some off-trail walking on tundra.

The trail was on a dirt road with a lot of jeeps and 4 wheelers. Not a lot of views until you reach a clearing. The view is great from up there up the trail guide instructions are NOT accurate. Snowshoed this trail today and it was SO much harder on snowshoes. Only saw 4 snowmobiles. It was a great workout.

Beautiful hike that is avoided by people on foot, so good for those who like their dogs off leash. Well used by OHVs, so go early in the morning to avoid the jeep rush in the late morning early afternoon. Easy to navigate off trail to avoid the OHVs as well.
