You can see the flowers all around us, it was very pretty.
The trail is very easy. You start buy walking through a campground area and most of the trail is a road. There are signs around keeping you on the right path. You have to cross a few streams on the way up.
We saw a couple of moose. You can barely see one in this picture. I will upload another picture next that you can see them better in.
The trail is slightly up hill the whole way and there are three steeper switch backs right at the top but it was really an easy hike. The elevation gain was just under 500 feet and about 3/4ths of a mile one way.
Here is Bradley trying to go off on his own hike.
We stopped on the way up to get a family picture. You can see it is starting to get dark now.
Yeah we made it! We could only stay a few minutes because before we knew it the sun was completely gone. We had to use flash lights to get back.
What a fun and easy hike. The wild flowers were very beautiful and I would recommend this hike to anyone. It is family friendly and well worth the drive.
