need suggestions on short hike RMNP, with moose sighting potential

We'll be driving from Summit County over Trailridge Drive to stay in Estes Park for one night in July at the end of our week long Colorado vacation(other locations: Aspen, Vail, and Summit County). We've visited RMNP and driven Trailridge Drive once before. We'd like to stop and take a short hike, maybe a mile or two round trip, in a scenic area that has a good chance of sighting moose. We figure that's the west side but are open to any suggestions. We've been to Adams falls on the last trip and would like to visit somewhere new. Any suggestions on a good short hike with high moose sighting potential?.

Check this URL:

Visitors sight moose with some frequency in the half-mile stretch just north of Onahu Creek Trailhead, along the Onahu Trail. Willow areas along the Colorado River next to Timber Creek Campground and at Lulu City are other good viewing locations. Rangers at the Kawuneeche Visitor Center can often provide information on where moose have been recently seen.
