Trail In-Depth: Upper Montane Trail

The Upper Montane Trail, one of Genesee’s lesser known trails, offers a sense of isolation and tranquility as it traverses a beautiful meadow in an intimate valley in the northeast corner of Genesee.  The native grass meadow is bracketed by cool north-facing slopes of Douglas Fir and habitat-rich rock outcrops.  Toward the eastern end of the trail lies a historic survey marker placed in 1866, when this area was part of the Kansas Territory.  Enjoy this intriguing series of experiences, recently enhanced through tread and drainage restoration by the trail stewards.
