Big Meadow to Manter Meadow is a 5.2 mile out and back trail located near Springville, CA and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from June until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Took the south trail to the southern end of Manter Mdw, the meadow was nice and green but if you want to hike the other trails in the Domeland Wilderness with the exception of the N. Manter Trail be prepared to do some bushwacking as these trails haven't be maintained for years
Took North trail in and South Trail out. Camped at the head of the Manter Creek at the Eastern edge of the meadow. Two large fire rings seperated by 100yds or so. Nice camp spot.
Rained all night, big fat drops. Lightening and Thunder. Warm during the day and cool at night.
Took the South Manter Meadow Trail. Late May. Was a great hike, all downhill on the way in. Described as moderate but was easy enough. 2.5 miles one-way, shouldn't take more than 3-4 hours. Down in Manter it was very windy and cold all night.
Morning was crisp and frosty but wind was gone. Trail easy to find and stay on. Plenty of shade on the trail. Trail follows a small creek. Bring filter if you don't bring water.
Meadow = soggy, don't walk through the meadow.
Only saw 6 people walking on the other side of the meadow. Very quite and secluded location.
