Embark on your journey along the Meadow View Loop from the Sleepy S Trailhead. From here, track northwest along the meadow-laden path. Soon after your departure, the route will deliver you to an intersection. From here, veer right and you will be diverted onto the Elk Ridge Trail. Hike this path up the ridge through old-growth pines to a scenic overlook. Between the tree breaks look down on Elk Meadows, hopefully dotting some grazing wildlife. You will shortly encounter another junction, take a sharp left turn onto the Meadow View Trail.
Follow the increasingly exposed trail down to the next intersection. Here, reconnect with the Sleepy S Trail and hike back to the junction where you commenced your loop. At this point, simply retrace your footing along the Sleepy S Trail all the way back to the trailhead.
