Description : From a thick stand of alders, this trail meanders through a grove of insect-damaged fir trees. Locally known as maldow, "old man's beard" lichen hangs mysteriously from the dead branches. At the trail's midway point a detour to the top of Louil Hill provides a breathtaking panoramic view overlooking Alexander Bay.
Wildlife/Plant Life : Only granite hills in Park, woodpeckers, crossbills, old man's beard, sheep laurel
Access: From Route 310, opposite Traytown Access Road
Condition: A dry and leisurely hike. After heavy rains the start / finish section of the loop may become quite muddy.
Caution: The detour up to Louil Hill is steep and may be slippery after rain.
