This hike starts at the Penrose trailhead in Story, and winds about 2.5 miles up through sparse forest with a couple of views out into the basin, to a broad meadow beneath dolomite outcrops known for moose and mountain lion habitat. Some wildflowers should be popping, and a rare orchid may be in the area. Grouse and the Mountain Tanager have been spotted here also.
