In mid-August we had a pretty hike up the North Fork Ridge Trail! We had the trail all to ourselves & we saw a mama & baby elk, ravens & deer (no pics, they were too quick)Also saw a deer carcass scattered to the side of the trail, which was a little unsettling but we made it back, so all good
It was a moderate hike, and a little overgrown, so I was glad I had long pants on. Overall a pretty one & good workout!
