    Big Meadows Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "A lush trail passes the remains of historic structures while providing the variety of a loop hike. Big Meadows is fairly well named. There is a meadow; it is big. There is, however, only one meadow, not two or more.

    Mount Ida is obvious to the north. Its left slope seems gentle; the right a sudden drop-off. Marshes and beaver ponds fill the sunny foreground. The trail stays just within the forest edge, avoiding the wet areas."
