Frantz Meadow Trail #1216

There are many wildflowers in this wetland environment. The trail is steep and rocky. Although this area is not presently closed to motorcycles, they are not recommended due to the steep trail and potential for environmental damage.

This trail is located in the Biscuit Fire area that burned in the year 2002.Although Forest Service trail crews have been repairing and maintaining many of the affected trails since the Biscuit Fire, visitors should take into consideration (because of the substantially increased risk of fire-killed snags falling) that travel and camping may be more difficult and require greater concern for safety.
