A moderately easy walk to viewpoints of the Trout River and mineral laden cliffs where wildlife can occasionally been seen licking the minerals found in the soil. As this trail is a loop, you can go either way from the trailhead sign in the parking area. The easiest, though, is to head towards the viewpoints to the left as it is the steeper section on the trail and is best done going downhill.
Keep an eye out for sheep and other wildlife while down at the river viewpoint, as the frequent the area to lick the minerals found in the soil. Visitors should also note that the fencing is not complete along the tops of the cliffs so caution should be taken on wet days or if riding a mountain bike.
Difficulty: Moderately easy
