Sayles Canyon North Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Early to midsummer hikers will experience a burst of color from a bounty of wildflowers along this route that follows the Sayles Canyon and Bryan Meadow trails and a short section of the Pacific Crest Trail to form the 8-mile loop portion of a 10-mile trip. Although the route is mostly forested, Round and Bryan meadows provide two picturesque clearings along the way with passable campsites nearby for overnighters."
