For an up-close-and-personal view of Three Fingered Jack, Canyon Creek Meadows is your ticket. This popular route climbs to the base of the craggy mountain, through some of the state’s most spectacular displays of wildflowers, and provides views of glaciers, meadows, and pristine mountain rivers in between. Few trails are able to get you up into the high alpine scenery quite as quickly as this one. Due to the relatively short distance overall, Canyon Creek Meadows has become a popular area for many. So unless you’re visiting during weekdays or in September, chances are you won’t be alone. On the positive side, the Forest Service has helped to mitigate this somewhat by encouraging trail users to hike the route clockwise, reducing your chances of running into other users.
