Walton Ranch Interpretive Trail (#3418) is an easy 0.25 mile hike. If you are looking for a panoramic view of the lower canyon, or warming up before trekking up to Rooster Rock, check out this trail. The trail crosses Trout Creek and ends at two viewing platforms. The first platform provides a view of the Walton Ranch site and wildlife habitat area. The second platform provides a better view of the west end of the meadow where elk concentrate during winter months. Both the trail and viewing platforms are designed to be wheelchair accessible with fine graveled surface on parking lot and tail.
