Canyon Creek Meadows Professional Review and Guide

"This popular loop route takes you past Jack Lake and on a tour of a high alpine meadow with bubbling Canyon Creek flowing through it. In addition, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the jagged spires of Three Fingered Jack. High mountain scenery is the highlight of this popular trail. The route takes you past
Jack Lake and then enters spectacular Canyon Creek Meadows. Jack Lake covers about 7 acres and is host to a nice campground.

After 0.2 mile you’ll arrive in a high alpine meadow that has a profusion of bright purple lupine and brilliant red Indian paintbrush blooms in the summer. After 2 miles you’ll enjoy a stunning view of the craggy spires of 7,841-foot Three Fingered Jack—named in honor of Joaquin Murietta, an aspiring gold rusher with a mutilated, three-fingered hand."
