    This is a good prep hike for many of the "destination" hikes offered by the WF. Easy access, and can be hiked year round (if you can stand a little snow and cold). With Jan/Feb drifts some care is required in the narrow cliff areas between mile 1.5 and 2. Good variable scenery and wildlife. In this area I have seen: Snakes, skunk, [someone else's video of a] bear, lizards, moose, deer, rams, rabbits, birds of all types, elk in the upper region, wild turkeys... and I am probably forgetting something. It took the course of 5 years of hiking to see all of those, but they are all there, and then some I am sure!
