As we walk, we will discuss the history of the area, including the Wind River Experimental Forest and the past century of evolving national forest management practices. We'll also examine the fascinating plant life along this unique trail, which includes a variety of habitats - such as wetland, an Oregon ash forest, and even some old growth. We might even catch some elk browsing in a meadow.
