From the parking area at the East Fork Trailhead, the trail ascends a short lodgepole-pine bench to circumnavigate a short, tight section of the canyon of the East Fork of the Wind River. Within 200 yards it descends to a large meadow full of willows, where moose are a common sight. Look straight ahead to the north. The high mountains you see are where you’re headed. Luckily, the East Fork Trail takes you there gently. It’s well graded and well maintained. Highlights: A challenging and adventurous loop into some of the most spectacular country in the Absaroka Range.
