Jenkins Meadow Trail #53A

  

The Jenkins Meadow Trail starts on the entrance road to the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and climbs to a junction with the Haoe Lead Trail.  Approximately ½ mile from the trailhead is a junction with a connector trail leading to the Naked Ground trail, bypassing the Memorial Forest.  From that point, the Jenkins Meadow Trail is a steady climb, gaining 2,300 feet to the junction with Haoe Lead.  There are several nice views along its length, but there is no meadow left, as forest growth has reclaimed what was formerly a grazing area for cattle.

Difficulty: Moderate

Usage: Light
