"A gorgeous flower-filled meadow with wide panoramas of the south side of Mount Adams and the golden Klickitat Valley has been a family delight for generations. The day-hike to this superb subalpine park is filled with child-delighting features. Plan to walk to Hellroaring Canyon Overlook and there explain the ice fall, glacial moraines, and volcanic evidences to the kids." Read more

"There are only a few places you can get views of the east side of Mount Adams that are this beautiful and vast. The wildflower meadows that line the trail are an inspiring foreground at the picturesque viewpoint of Hellroaring Meadow’s basin to the east and the giant shoulders of Mount Adams to the north. Bird Creek Meadows has some interesting management history." Read more

I thought this was one of the nicest short hikes I have experienced. The wild flowers are fantastic, and the hike was very pleasent. We walked the complete loop around the meadows down to bluff lake and back to the parking lot. A few mosquitos on the back half so be prepared.
