High Country Meadows trail: a nice day hike

Unlike our lower altitude trails in the Camanche-Pardee segment, this trail, at 7200′, is buried right now under mounds of snow. But it’s a great trail to visit in mid to late summer. A nice 9.2 mile round trip is in store for you, with a couple challenging ridges to conquer. A less challenging option is the meadow meander, offering plenty to occupy an explorer, a family with children, or birdwatcher.

This trail works as a day hike or as a jump off spot to head into the Mokelumne Wilderness (get a permit first before going). We’re thinking of calling it the High Country Meadows trail, but if you have a better suggestion, just holler. Details at the link.
