Meadow Creek Trail #33


This trail enters the Eagles Nest Wilderness and eventually takes you up into the high alpine terrain of Eccles Pass. The beginning of the trail climbs steeply as it passes through aspen stands. Great views of Dillon Reservoir and the Upper Blue Valley can be seen from occasional clearings along the Meadow Creek Trail. As you approach timberline, the trail opens up in a large meadow providing beautiful views of the surrounding area.
