"The broad, open canyon of the New Fork River, bounded by some of the most impressive canyon walls and wildflowers in the range, offers a delightful and scenic way to reach the lake-dotted bench and high peaks region in the northern reaches of the Bridger Wilderness. The New Fork Trail is much less popular than trails beginning at the Green River Lakes and Elkhart Park entrances, but no less rewarding. This trail surveys the spectrum of Bridger Wilderness landscapes, passing low-elevation glacial lakes, aspen groves, sagebrush-clad slopes, towering granite walls, timberline lakes, and alpine meadows filled with wildflowers and offering grand vistas of the range’s highest, glacier-draped peaks."
