Meeks Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Here’s a quick and easy way to attain deep peace, visit a pure and clear creek, and perhaps spot some wildlife. With several better-known routes nearby, Meeks Creek is saved for adventurous souls and/or beginning snowshoers who crave a solitary and satisfying wilderness experience. With tall conifers, scenic shrubbery, and a swift creek included in the journey, you’re apt to see Steller’s jays, red-tailed hawks, and mountain chickadees in the open forest and perhaps a great horned owl in the deeper woods. Occasionally used by cross-country skiers and even hikers with boots, this route features flat terrain and simple routefinding, making it ideal after a huge batch of fresh powder has fallen or even during inclement weather. If snow is too skimpy here, you may have to move to a nearby higher elevation route described in this book. If you come in early spring, the creek is noisy and active and the willow buds swell."
