Elk Meadow Park: Meadow View Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Elk Meadows are magnificent examples of mountain meadows with wildflowers, wildlife, and well-maintained trails for easy mountain bike rides and gentle hikes.

If you want a more strenuous outing, you can summit Bergen Peak or take the trails that venture onto the ponderosa pine–covered slopes. This is an especially good place for beginner mountain bikers who want fun, nontechnical rides on rolling terrain."

"This circuit around what is arguably the premier park in the Evergreen area skirts the forested foot of Bergen Peak, then meanders through a broad, wildflower-rich meadow. Elk Meadow is one of Jefferson County Open Space’s flagship mountain parks. Anchored by 9,708-foot Bergen Peak, it encompasses the signature meadow of the Evergreen area, a sloping chameleon-like grassland that, in spring, blushes with yellow, pink, and purple wildflowers and in fall burnishes to gold highlighted with the russets, reds, and oranges of late-season blooms and deciduous shrubs."
