Description

Meander Meadows Campground Access Trail is found around the 5.5 mile mark along Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525. It is a bypass trail from Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525 that takes one to Meander Meadows trail camp, a wonderful place to stay. Both ends of Meander Meadows Campground Access Trail are signed with arrows pointing to Meander Meadows.

Meander Meadows Campground Access Trail starts by leaving Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525 and descending through lush, low bushes and brush that give way to grassy meadows as one nears the trail camp. At its low point, nearest the trail camp, Meander Meadows Campground Access Trail becomes faint and there are several other side paths into the trail camp. Therefore, when you want to continue on Meander Meadows Campground Access Trail and return to Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525 watch carefully for this trail's sharp, but faint turn back towards Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525.

Returning to Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525, Meander Meadows Campground Access Trail crosses the meadows, starts climbing, and is soon in the low, lush bushes, where it meets up with Little Wenatchee River Trail #1525.

Flora & Fauna
