Meadows. Lush, green meadows filled with fragrant wildflowers and juicy berries. High alpine meadows with low, hardy heathers and grasses. Rocky subalpine meadows littered with rocks and patches of slow-melting snow. This route explores a rich cornucopia of meadow types. Because many of the meadow types are fragile, neither you nor your dog should venture out onto them. On the higher elevation meadows, make sure to stay on the trails; it is only the hardy grass meadows of the lower mountain that can withstand much paw or foot traffic.
