Sky Meadow


Most of the trail follows the banks of Coldwater Creek, with some easy stream crossings (except after a downpour). Very peaceful and pretty. There are plenty of flowers and greenery in the early Summer. Bring bug repellent as the creek attracts lots of mosquitoes. After a moderate climb, you will be rewarded with a beautiful meadow set against stunning peaks. This a great family hike.
