This hike climbs 700 feet over Marvin Pass and down to Rowell Meadow. The trail is entirely forested offering protection from the Sun on warm days. The meadow just south of Marvin Pass and Rowell Meadow offer wildflowers late into the summer.

We took this hike in search of wildflowers in the high meadows. We were surprised to find that this trail is entirely in forest with no open vistas. We did see grouse and marmot and some wildflowers, but the flowers were mostly on their decline. Next time we'll veer left at Marvin Pass and ascend Mitchell Peak for the 360 degree views.
