After a few hikes with substantial elevation gains, I decided to mix it up a little with a flat hike
. Very peaceful setting, the smell and feel of fall was definitely in the air. There is just something very soothing about walking through aspens as they are starting to turn. I combined this one with the West Fork of the Black River trail, definitely nice to soak the feet for a few minutes in the river! There are no spectacular views on this trip, but definitely worth a visit this time of the year for the relaxation factor.
