PCT: Echo Summit to Bryan Meadow Professional Review and Guide

"This trip follows a seldom-used section of the Pacific Crest and Tahoe Rim trails. What little traffic this section does receive, other than from through-hikers bound for Canada, is from day-trippers headed to Benwood Meadow, which is only three-quarters of a mile from the trailhead.

Beyond there, the serene forest beckons the solitude seeker who doesn’t wilt at the thought of a moderately steep climb. Bryan Meadow at the conclusion of the trip is a half-mile-long clearing along a tributary of Sayles Canyon Creek that will delight botanists from early to midsummer."
