Very difficult finding the trailhead, first because there is no trail named Page Meadow Loop, second because the trail marker is hidden between two trees on the side of the road, third Google maps gave incomplete directions. To get to the loop you have to hike 2 miles up the Tahoe Rim Trail from the north side of Ward Creek Blvd. To find Ward Creek Blvd. turn up Pineland from Hwy 89, take Twin Peaks to Ward Creek Blvd. The elevation gain is steady. There is more than one meadow. We could not find signage indicating the start of the loop, yet there are a number of splits from the TRT, and the All Trails app did not help.

following the Tahoe Rim trail was easy because of the tree markers. But we had trouble orienting ourselves to find the loop option back from Page Meaxows. So we just retraced our steps from Page Meadow.

So many options on this trail. Not too many people not too long but u can extend it if you want to go further. Pretty trees. Beautiful meadows and scenery. Cool off road trail for cars too if you want to come back later. Light traffic during the week

Difficult to get to the trailhead due to road construction. The parts of the trail not on the TRT were poorly signed, and we met several hikers who were bewildered as to where on the trail they were. The TRT section was rather unremarkable, but the meadows were gorgeous.

Nice and flat when you access it from up in the neighborhood. A little muddy in the meadows but not bad. Lots of tiny wildflowers.

We had a tough time finding the trailhead. First we parked and walked to the left and got swarmed with mosquitoes. We got back in the car to leave and then decided to pull off the road further down and walk up to the right, up a dirt road. It didn’t look to be a trailhead but we were ready to hike!!

The only marking we saw was for the Tahoe Rim Trail, not sure where the other Trail was for the loop portion of this. We followed along, path wasn’t too strenuous. The meadow was “mosquito meadow”! We had a few layers of clothing and bug spray and were still getting bitten. Still very wet, muddy as the snow is almost all melted at this point but just very swampy.
There’s probably wayyyyyyy better hikes in the Tahoe area.

There is still a good amount of snow on this trail, but it’s beautiful and doable without snow shoes right now. We saw some very fresh bear tracks in the snow (!) in the meadows, which made us all a bit on edge for the rest of the hike!

Trail isn't marked very well but once you find your way it's a great hike and the scenery is beautiful.

The meadow was beautiful. We hiked late May, mid-day with our 8 and 10 year olds. I can see why the notes for this trail suggest it's use starting in July. Much of it was still covered in snow or blocked by fallen trees. We soon figured out that the trail follows stream beds which were flowing with the snow melt run off. Lucky we met experienced hikers who flagged the trail for us. We never would have made it to the meadow without their help. Can't wait to try this trail again in Summer when the path is cleared.

Drive to End of Silver Tip drive

Lots of snowshoe trails. Trails close to trailhead packed down by snowmobiles. Further on motorized vehicles are not allowed.

Very little altitude gain, but nice hike overall.
