The seductions of a quiet mountain meadow are on display along this stretch of the Tahoe Rim Trail, which serves as a portal to “Meiss Country,” named for an early pioneer family, and to Dardanelles Lake. A quick climb leads to Big Meadows, stuffed with wildflowers and solitude. And, like buttercream icing on a chocolate cake, a river (okay, a gurgling creek) runs through it.
