Soon after your departure, the route will deliver you to an intersection. From here, veer right and you will be diverted onto the Elk Ridge Trail. Hike this path up the ridge through old-growth pines to a scenic overlook. Between the tree breaks look down on Elk Meadows, hopefully dotting some grazing wildlife.
