Hike to the top of Meadow Mountain from St. Vrain Mtn Trailhead In Allenspark. About 7.4 miles RT and 3200 ft. of climb. 3.4 miles of trail and 0.3 mile off trail across the tundra to the peak looking down on Finch Lake. Moderate C level hike. Beautiful views the 13ers in RMNP and of the peaks of the Indian Peak Wilderness to the south. Should find plenty of flowers in bloom along the way. Moderate pace. Not a beginner hike. The distance and climb require a good level of fitness and previous hiking experience. Bring snacks, at least two liters of water
, and a lunch to enjoy on top. Good hiking boots and trekking poles are also recommended.
I hope to be at the trailhead by 8:00 am and plan to begin the hike up the trail at 8:15. All participants must check in with me.
Please, no dogs allowed on hikes that I lead unless specifically stated in the hike write-up.
Please, don't show up for a hike unless your YES RSVP has been accepted for you and any guest(s) that you intend to bring with you.
Also, hiking is risky. Every year people are hurt and killed because they go beyond their abilities, get lost, or bring the wrong gear. I normally lead hikes that I've done before. I don't do technical climbs but some of my hikes have strenuous climbs that may require using some handholds or bushwhacking and require good physical strength and agility. I am not a professional guide, you are responsible for yourself. By signing up for this hike you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own safety and will do the necessary research to understand the conditions of this hike and the gear and conditioning required.
