Cottonwood Creek - Scout Ridge Trail

Green Up! That exciting day when you wake up and the world is green again. We even found some flowers on our hike.

Scout Ridge trail is part of Palmer Hayflats and is in the Cottonwood Creek area. There is a wooden overlook at the beginning which is wheelchair and stroller accessible. The rest of the trail is not. There's only one steep-ish hill but otherwise it's mostly flat. The trail is a loop with both ends connecting to the parking lot. This is a great trail for birds, the last time we went we got to see some eagles up close and this time it was ptarmigan. You can also hear all kinds of birdsong and calls over the hayflats. There was only a few patches of easily avoidable mud.
