    Route Description for Sky Meadows Trail

    Depending on the time of year that you do the Sky Meadows Trail, the mosquitoes can be rather prolific. As such, it is recommended that you bring bug spray and wear pants and long sleeves. The pathway for the Sky Meadows Trail can likewise be difficult to follow after fresh snowfall. So if you are planning on doing the route later in the season, a mapping tool is recommended.

    Having reached the trailhead, follow the Emerald Lake Trail south as it steadily inclines in elevation. Follow Emerald Lake Trail south all the way to Emerald Lake itself before taking the western pathway at the trail junction. Follow this pathway alongside a creek until the trail veers sharply to the west. Having crossed another creek, the trail will again veer sharply to the south and after a few hundred feet of walking, you will arrive at Sky Meadows. After you have had an opportunity to enjoy the views, simply backtrack your steps towards the trailhead.
