This trail littered with sagebrush and balsamroot trail is just across the road from the Lighting Creek campground. In late summer, fragrant flowers surround the area, intoxicating curious hikers.

Explore further to a hidden valley with birch trees. The campground is heavily used, but provides an excellent base camp for access to many other possible trails. There's no elevation gain, or much distance at all, but this area provides a nice option for those hikers who want to take it easy for a day or so.
