I was a bit disappointed in this hike but must confess that I did not make it to Golden Lake or the tarns above. The meadows are actually about 5 miles out, with 4 to 4.5 miles of it through the Pole Creek burn. I would be hard pressed to do this hike again. I much prefer the Canyon Creek Meadows or Broken Top hikes.

Good for kids, not a lot of elevation gain. At times the trail can be dusty. Park Meadow itself is very beautiful with lots of clean water at the creeks and good views of Broken Top and South Sister. Good for an overnight backpacking trip with the family!
