Additional Information:
Learn more about the aspen, the most widely distributed tree in North America. We’ll hike about two miles round-trip at 8,500 feet through conifer forest, meadows, and aspen groves. Along the way, we’ll discuss the importance of aspen to wildlife, response to fire, and threats to its health. We might even hear the eerie sounds of bugling elk!
