Runner Notes

A clear path, good views, and gentle grade make this a great trail to include in a loop.

Description

The Meadow View Trail is a straightforward connector that links the Roadside Trail to the Rock Creek Trail along a narrow gravel path. Like the name suggests, you'll get nice views of the meadow below as you run, making this a nice option to create-your-own-loop from the available trails near the visitor center.

The views from this trail are particularly fine in the fall as the waves of gold cover the surrounding valley.
