This is an easy trail through wildflowers along a ridge above a stream. While hiking it, we saw a bear down below us in the stream fishing or drinking water. There is also a horseback trail that goes through the area, so watch your step!

no cars allowed but watch for bears. it must have been amazing before the fire. they won't let you bike the whole thing for some reason. maybe it's the bears. nice rolling hills if you were allowed.

It was a great hike. Thought there were sightings of bears (we didn’t see it personally) but we still went for the hike and quite enjoyed it.

Great scenery. As of July 2018 about half of the parkway is closed due to fire year before. But wildflowers are out so makes this great outing.
