Hike is short but very good. Woods are very interesting with some fallen down. This is one of the very good hikes along the loop that are very easy to get to but a great chance to see the giant trees and unique woods

We only saw a herd of elk over there; not much other than that. We didn't see any bear nor did we hear anything about bear over there. It was nice and peaceful while we were there. I hope this help and enjoy your trip.
