Description

This oasis of lush greenery is welcome respite from the dry ponderosa pine forest surroundings. The ground below the quaking aspen foliage is blanketed with grasses and blooming wildflowers in season. Trees are similar in bole height and diameter because wildfire swept the area in 1958 and consumed most above-ground plant growth.

Caution: The final length of road is less than friendly to low-clearance vehicles, the area is isolated, and drinking water is scarce. This site is not signed, so a GPS device or detailed map is helpful.
