Trail Overview

This trail follows the West Fork of the Madison River, which is a beautiful stream that highlights the beauty of the valley you will be following. This is an exceptionally beautiful area and we were lucky enough to be there when the wildflowers were in full bloom. This trail was mostly saved from the ravages of the fire that devastated much of this area two years ago. We had to stop our adventure as the trail transitions to a 50" trail. There is a restroom facility at the end.
