My very favorite trail anywhere. Gorgeous from start to finish, good elevation change but not too tough for younger siblings. Great for hiking, but mountain biking is my favorite.

Did this as an overnighter with my 8 year old and it was perfect! Great campsite at the Meadows and we woke up to a herd of elk grazing.

I love this easy hike. It offers a very few gentle ups and downs with a net gain in elevation of under 300 feet in 4-miles. Yes, it's that gentle. On my first hike here (9-28-13) there was about two inches of snow on the ground. Yup - late September and already snow. At the 4-mile mark the hike enters the actual meadow area. There is a fantastic level undeveloped camping area, and the trail does go further.
