A Bike and Hike destination, the Lily Meadows Hike – also known as Bulldog Ridge Trail – is a scene out of Sound of Music during late June to early July. For centuries, bulb-digging grizzlies have cultivated yellow glacier lilies. Here and there you’ll see freshly turned earth – evidence of a bear’s busy paw. Apparently the bulbs are slightly sweet in taste. Even if you miss the lily explosion, you won’t be disappointed. Beyond the meadows, the mountain peak sits atop the meadow like a flat-top haircut – a rocky mesa. Skirting to the left and over a rockslide, you’ll discover a a turquoise lake as you get closer to the Horse Creek headwaters and its glaciers. The groundcover of heather feels amazing on weary bare feet. Some hikers swim in the frigid water.
