Description

This trail starts off the Inside North Fork Road between Polebridge and the Quartz Creek trail. It starts out in a hall of younger lodgepole pines. This gives way to an older stand of trees that are fir and aspen. This stand of trees is more open with small meadows. This gives way to the larger Hidden Meadow featuring a lovely pond. This is the site of an old homestead.

Flora & Fauna

Lodgepole gives way to aspen/fir forest and meadows with arnica, geranium, and more forest/meadow flowers. Small birds and mammals can be found in the trees and a possibility for deer, elk, and the less frequent bear. Birds range from small forest birds and hawks to some waterfowl including swans.
