Jackpot Meadow Tr #492 in tough shape

Post by kwpapke » August 28th, 2015, 10:43 am

I did a loop hike this week: Timberline --> PCT --> Jackpot Meadow --> Salmon River --> Welches. Great loop, and there was some down timbers on all the trails, but the Jackpot Meadow trail is in really tough shape. Don't think it gets much use except for the people logging timber. In some areas the trail was tough to follow, like right where the Meadow drains out it was completely overgrown. Here's one of the bigger ones:

Ironic in that there are some new trail signs that clearly show the intersections with the roads that cut over from the PCT.
