Grasshopper Meadow


2.6 miles round trip

850 feet elevation gain

Open late June to early November

Use: hikers, bicycles, horses

Thousands of tiny grasshoppers enliven this mountain meadow each summer, but the real attractions here are a wealth of wildflowers and a spring with deliciously cold water. A good trail climbs a mile to the meadow, but then the tread peters out, so you’ll need to wade up through wildflowers a bit if you want to reach the mountain views at the top of the meadow.

Start by driving Highway 58 . . .
