Distance 1.0 km return, height gain 10 m, easy
A short, barrier-free interpretive trail passes through a fragile alpine meadow with wildflowers only during the very short blooming season. The trail ends at two viewing platforms with interpretive signs.
Start: The summit of Highwood Pass. The highest paved highway in Canada at 2203 m.
Difficulty: Easy gravel with boardwalk at the end. Gentle uphill grade except for one very short steep section. Currently (Jly 2018) there is a 5" step up onto the boardwalk.
Note: This is a good area for larch viewing in the fall.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
