Route Description for Panther Meadows Trail
Hikers of all skill levels and ages can enjoy this beautiful adventure through Panther Meadows. Indulge in commanding views of Mount Shasta dominating the skyline as you explore the tundra adorned with diverse flora and a snowmelt stream. Note this path is exposed, so check the forecast and dress accordingly! Note the terrain is rocky, so mind your footing to avoid a rolled ankle. Although this route is accessible year-round, we enjoy it most in the autumn when the fall colors are vibrant.
Embark on your adventure along the Panther Meadow Trail from the trailhead in the Panther Meadow Campground. From here, the Panther Meadow Trail will lead you to an intersection; keep left here. Now meandering northeast, the route will gradually climb through the meadowlands, and sparse tree stands. Admire the scene of the encompassing snow-capped summits, including Mount Shasta. Mind your footing as the trail intersects with the stream.
When you ultimately reach the trail’s end, turn around, and retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead, marking the end of your adventure.
