You want to follow Rock Creek Road to the Meadow Mountain Trailhead to your right. A sign points to the Meadow Mountain Trailhead about 1.5 miles in from Allenspark. The trail climbs gradually but consistently for its entire length to the St. Varian Mountain Trail. Once you reach the head of the valley, the timber thins out. Be alert to slab snow conditions.
Directions from Allenspark: Turn onto Ski Road 107E. Park near here or back at a pullout.
