Wildflowers in Indian Peaks, CO, an old climbers' trail in Wyoming, and more.
With just a 5-mile approach that loses 600 feet in elevation as it winds along a creekbed—home to deer and elk—en route to a perfectly flat and wind-protected campsite, this hike will please novices and families alike. From the Marsh Creek trailhead, reach the Big Hole campground at the mouth of the Salmon River’s Middle Fork at mile 5; retrace your steps on the return. Contact (208) 756-5100; Website
