Rising abruptly from Highway 89 for the first 1/2 mile, this trail levels off as it reaches Big Meadow. Trails leading to Round, Scotts and Dardanelles lakes provide access into Meiss Country with views of aspen covered hills from lodgepole cloaked forests. NOTE: This trail eventually intersects the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) where mountain bikes are allowed. Take Highway 89 south from Meyers to the Big Meadow parking lot. Follow the trail at the southern end of the parking lot which leads across the highway to the trailhead.
