One of the easier and most accessible hikes in the Sawtooths. Enjoy beautiful views at the meadow and beaver ponds. There may be recent beaver activity. This trail also has great views of Horstman Peak and the Fishhook valley.
If you continue beyond the meadow, on the user-made trail, you will be entering the Sawtooth Wilderness. Make sure you fill out a Wilderness permit at the trailhead if you plan to travel into the meadow.
