Route Description for Right and Left Meadows Loop
The Right and Left Meadows Loop is an excellent choice for your next adventure. Get outside and reconnect with nature as you walk through woodlands and meadows and along an alpine creek. Easy-going and family-friendly, this trek makes for a relaxing adventure in the Sierra National Park. Open year-round, this route required snowshoes or microspikes after a snowfall to easily navigate the likely icy terrain.
Your journey along the Right and Left Meadows Loop begins from the trailhead off Jackson/Big Sandy Road. Track the connector trail east past the cellphone tower to an intersection. Here, veer left, and you will be diverted onto the Right Meadow Trail. Follow this route through mixed-conifer forest adorned with granite outcrops before opening to the meadowlands. Gradually descending, you will eventually reach Big Creek. Wander northeast along the creek, then turn right onto the Left Meadow Trail.
The Left Meadow Trail will climb through the meadow and towering pines. At the trail’s end, hike west along the Jackson/Big Sandy Road before reconnecting with the connector trail, past the cell tower, and back to the trailhead.
