View from the Parking Area

Trail Thoughts and Musings

To get to the trail head, you drive west 1.8 miles on Highway 9 from its intersection with 35. There are no signs to mark the large pullout on the left. In fact, there are few signs to indicate that this is Summit Meadows. Most people you find parked have just stopped to enjoy the fantastic view that can be seen from the pullout. Now you will know that the views just keep getting better while hiking on the trail.
