Muddy Meadows Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Everyone loves meadows, and this trail starts out smackdab in the middle of a scenic one. From there, the gentle climb takes you up to a level (hence the name) grassy expanse with views of
Mount Adams. Foggy? Perhaps, but not when I was there! Odds are you’ll be enjoying your picnic with a great view, nary a soul around, and plenty of peace and quiet, save for the clacking Clark’s nutcrackers carrying on in the nearby trees."

"Traverse lush meadows and mid-mountain forest as you climb to the subalpine realm at the northwestern foot of Mount Adams. Mount Adams rises high above to your right as you leave the trailhead and hike east across Muddy Meadows. Shortly you enter the fringes of the lodgepole pine and spruce forest along the northern edge of the meadow."
