Upper Canyon Creek Meadow

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Three Fingered Jack and Upper Canyon Creek Meadow (Engin T)


Upper Canyon Creek Meadow is a glacial outflow plain on the Northeast side of Three Fingered Jack. In August, wildflowers are abundant, and so are the mosquitoes. There are several campsites near the meadow, making this an optimal backpacking location. It is accessed via a moderately easy hike starting from the Jack Lake Trailhead. There are several meadows along the way to Upper Canyon Creek Meadow, but this one is the largest, most scenic, and has the most wildflowers. Canyon Creek flows through it, coming directly from a glacial lake just above the meadow.
