This easy and well-defined trail parallels Cottonwood Creek into two wildflower-covered meadows along the base of the Teton Range. In the first meadow is an abandoned, government-owned log structure from the old Lucas Ranch. Geraldine Lucas, who once owned the ranch, died in 1 938. In the second meadow is a large rock. Her ashes are buried beneath the rock, designated by a plaque. The views of the Tetons from both meadows are striking.
