Meyers Creek forms on the upper slopes at Meyers Creek Pass between the Boulder and Stillwater drainages. The creek flows six miles down Meyers Canyon, between Washburn Mountain and Meyer Mountain, to its confluence with Lodgepole Creek. It is a perennial creek, but portions run underground, creating the appearance of an ephemeral stream. This hike parallels Meyers Creek nearly the entire hike. The trail steadily climbs along the waterway to Meyers Creek Pass, which straddles the boundary between the Custer and Gallatin National Forests. From grassy Meyers Creek Pass are sweeping vistas in every direction, including views into the Dry Fork Creek drainage and the East Boulder River Valley. En route, the hike weaves through gorgeous open grasslands, aspen and pine groves, and flower-filled meadows surrounded by mountains.
