Trail shared by Tad Davis

A steep start leads to a beautiful meadow with a flowing stream, glacier, and 360-degree views from the mountain top.

Note that the road in can be rough. There are signs at the split to the lower trailhead where the route described here starts and the upper trailhead which is reached by a steep, 4WD-only "road".

Description

The trail starts with an immediate steep climb (about 1,200 feet in the first mile) over many slick tree roots. Around a mile or so, it'll flat occasionally, and you'll cross a marshy area on a nice wooden "sidewalk."

A little further on, the forest suddenly opens to a beautiful meadow with a very pleasant corridor through the middle that parallels, and at times crosses, the flowing river. The trail will continue to slowly climb as the terrain becomes more rocky and will eventually become steep again as you reach the glacier and the top of Brandywine Mountain.
