“A pleasant loop along the southwestern end of Meadow Mountain above Deep Creek Lake.”— Luke AT
In 1.2 miles, the run passes the Brant Mine Trail and the Brant Homestead site before ascending Meadow Mountain. At 1.5 miles, the trail bears right around a switchback and continues to ascend, reaching the ridgeline at mile 2.0 (at junction with the Overlook Trail, which leads a short distance to a very overgrown overlook platform).
The run continues east along the ridge, passing a communications array and old fire tower at mile 2.5. At mile 3.2, the trail bears right onto another woods road and becomes concurrent with the Indian Turnip Trail as it descends from Meadow Mountain. At mile 3.5, the run leaves the old road and heads onto a rocky singletrack trail and proceeds west along the base of Meadow Mountain back to the powerline cut at mile 4.2.
From there, you'll follow the Meadow Mountain Trail as it merges with the Indian Turnip Trail until you reach the campground access road. From here, visitors will follow the campground access road back to the visitor center.
