Meadows: Lush, green meadows filled with fragrant wildflowers and juicy berries. High, alpine meadows with low, hardy heathers and grasses. Rocky sub-alpine meadows littered with rocks and patches of slow-melting snow. This route explores a rich cornucopia of meadow types. But these natural pasture lands for wildlife aren’t the only draws to this route. From start to finish, the trail here offers outstanding views of Mount Adams and its many personalities. The rocky cliff faces, the crevasse-torn glaciers, the flowing white snowfields, and the noble crown of the summit are all visible most of the way up the trail.
