Moose Meadows trail (038) is a 9.2 mile out and back trail in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness. The trail begins at the Coal Creek Trailhead just a few miles east of Victor, ID. The trail is primarily used for hiking and cross-country skiing. A sign on Wyoming Highway 22 marks the beginning of the trail. After 2.3 miles of moderately steep hiking, Coal Creek Meadows is reached, whose deep grass and large spring make a beautiful campsite. Another .3 miles leads to the Coal Creek-Mequite Canyon divide and an intersection with a trail to Phillips Pass. From there 2.0 miles of moderate hiking down Mequite Canyon presents Moose Meadows, an area filled with large beaver ponds and grassy meadows frequently used as campsites. After an unbridged and sometimes hazardous crossing of Moose Creek, the trail intersects Moose Creek Trail.
