The Kim Williams Trail wanders through the riparian zone of the Clark Fork River. Composed of a variety of flowering shrubs like chokecherry and Lewis’ mock orange and trees like black cottonwood and quaking aspen, the riparian area is excellent habitat for butterflies, like Lorquin’s admirals, for birds, like Yellow Warblers, Bullock’s Orioles, and Eastern Kingbirds, and for mammals like white-tailed deer and red squirrels.
