Meadow Mountain

Length: 4.8 miles (one way)  Difficulty: Moderate

The Meadow Mountain trail follows an old logging road above Dowd Junction. Popular year-round, the trail is family and dog friendly. It climbs through meadows that were once home to a very prosperous lettuce farm. Views span from the Gore Range to Tennessee Pass. From the top of Meadow Mountain, you can descend the Whiskey Creek trail, then turn right on the Everkrisp trail for a 10.1 mile loop that will return you to the Meadow Mountain trailhead.


 Crowds: Moderate.


 Access: Travel west on I-70 to exit 171 for Minturn, Leadville, and Highway 24. Exit here and turn right (south). Just past the interstate look for a large parking lot on the right. The trail begins from the south end of the parking lot near the white house.
