If you start hiking from the parking area at the end of the reasonably good road, you immediately ford or jump over small Jojo Creek, then walk the road over a huge sagebrushcovered flat with the rather unimaginative (okay, make that really unimaginative) name of “The Meadows.” Name issues aside, The Meadows does provide terrific views of the peaks ahead and the possibility of seeing both deer and moose. Scattered about The Meadows, and especially along its edge, are trees such as quaking aspens, limber pines, and Engelmann spruces. After 0.4 mile you make a calf-deep ford of Wood River. Another 1.8 miles of mostly flat walking leads you to the second ford of Wood River, after which the road leaves The Meadows and enters increasingly forested terrain.
