Subalpine meadow teeming with flowers and wildlife... ideal for a quick, flat hike with the entire family The paths that meander around Tahoe Meadows are covered with footprints and signs of mammals, the air is filled with songbirds and raptors, and the ground is alive with masses of wildflowers and trees. This hike has no particular destination and it's not going to get you anywhere other than familiar with nature. A natural history field guide would be a welcome companion on this walk because you will have a chance to use it often.

Went snowshoeing this morning here about 10am - 12 with the family beautiful but whiteout snow conditions. Amazing how different it is from the spring and summer here. On the west side I’d the road all the snowmobilers were there bumper to bumper, but on the other side where the hiking is was a handful of folks. Great day!

We finally did this trail and it was okay. It's pretty flat and not long. Great for kids, and maybe off-road strollers. Lots of shade.

Little boring. High starting elevation.

Good easy hike for kids and dogs.

Nice easy loop to cool down the legs after finishing Mount Rose. Nice up close views of the meadows after seeing them from elevation.

This was the perfect trail for our family with young kids. The single bob fit perfectly and had the right amount of bumps to lull the baby to sleep. Fairly flat and well sign posted. Decent amount of shade but still used sunscreen as there are some sunny spots. Tons of butterflies, streams, just beautiful and peaceful. There were some mosquitoes which we weren’t prepared for so take note.

This trail is very beautiful. Surprisingly there were still lots of wild flowers in bloom and green lush meadow views. It is a very easy and well maintained trail.

Easy hike and great for kids! I also noticed a family with a stroller and another family with a wheelchair on this trail, so it’s a great hike for all abilities. It was a brisk and chill wind, but with a nice fleece or windbreaker it wasn’t too bad. My 4 year old loved stopping to read all the ‘stories’ on the interpretive signs.

A really wonderful loop trail for a family with three young kids ( under 3 years of age)! Trail was dry, with all the meadows green and lush with flowing rivulets everywhere.

Still snowy and slushy at points. Snow may be coming tonight. Probably not for everyone until later in the season.

I had issues with the altitude here. Otherwise it is a nice wide open area good for snowshoe or cross country skiing.

Really great hike especially on a snowy day. Highly recommend it but you might need chains to drive up to the trailhead

Great time of year to come see. Come early to avoid crowds.

Always one of my favorites hikes - easy for all levels and quiet and peaceful! Takes about 1 hour to do middle loop if you stop to enjoy and take photos
