Many trails travel near or through meadows. They provide great habitat for wildlife and plant species. The Golden Trout Wilderness has a good amount of meadows to discover. If you ever wanted to track how many meadows you have seen, then the list below should help you. Unnamed meadows or “stringer” meadows are not included on the list below. USGS maps were used to derive the names and complete the list.
The challenge is simple. Cross out all the meadows you have seen and try to visit ones you haven’t. Some meadows do not have trails to them any longer and require cross country travel. You will likely travel to remote spots within the Golden Trout Wilderness.
