Sentinel Meadows Professional Reviews and Guides
"The hike thorough Sentinel Meadows leads to Queens Laundry, a small thermal area also known as Red Terrace Spring. In the 1880s, the spring at the west end of the meadow was used as a bathing area. A log bath house was built and the structure still remains. Sentinel Creek weaves thorough the meadow. This hike follows the flat open meadow, passing numerous hot spring mounds.Hiking directions: From the parking pullout, head north across a wooden bridge into the lodgepole pine forest to a trail split a short distance ahead. Bear to the left, along the west side of Ice Lake, to a junction with the Howard Eaton Trail. Take the right fork along the north shore of the lake. Continue past the lake to a crossing of the Gibbon River. Downfall logs can be used to cross. At 2.3 miles is a junction with the Wolf Lake Trail."
