Meadow Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The trail leads directly to the base of the east flank of Chief Mountain and ascends 600 feet through the forest on 21 well-constructed switchbacks. Although built very well, the switchbacks were made a long time ago, and they are beginning to fall into disrepair. At the top of the switchbacks, the scene changes completely. The trail crosses a large rockslide (fortunately the trail through the slide is fairly good).

From the slide, the views of the surrounding mountain scenery are fine, especially to the southeast where the view is filled with the remarkably rugged hulk of Dundee Mountain. Dundee Mountain is the very steep southeast wall of Wood River Canyon. It rises 3,000 feet in less than 1 mile. Vegetation on its cliffs, talus slides, and pinnacles are nearly absent due to its abrupt angle and unstable slopes. Once past the rockslide, the trail levels out and enters Meadow Creek Canyon then imperceptibly rotates counterclockwise until it is heading due west. Highlights: A short, steep climb to a beautiful alpine basin."
