  This is the last Forum-comments page covering the trail up from the South Upper Truckee trail head in Meyers to the Meiss Cabin.  

To continue South along the Pacific Crest and Tahoe to Yosemite's unified trail route from Meiss Cabin to the Carson Gap, we will be leaving the South Upper Truckee trail and begin the next section of trail between Meiss Cabin and the Carson Gap, which is covered by the Echo Summit to Carson Pass section of the Trails Forum.  

If you have notes, pictures, and videos from your backpacking trips into Meiss Country through Echo Summit or the Carson Gap, share your experiences.

Here's our hiking options from Meiss Cabin in Meiss Meadow:

South to the Carson Gap.  See the Trail Guide.

North towards Echo Summit.  See the Trail Guide.

Northeast towards the South Upper Truckee trail head. See the Trail Guide.

To get a good idea of the layout of Meiss Country Roadless Area check out this 7.5 minute USGS topo map with the main trail routes highlighted.
This map, along with the miles, elevations, and other information provided on the linked Trail Guide pages gives us all the information we need to plan a long trip through, or short trips within, the Meiss Country Roadless Area.

The red dots along the marked trail routes link to the specific trail guide page for that location.

If you have personal information and knowledge from trips from the South Upper Truckee trail head to Dardanelles Lake or Round Lake. Please Register so that you can post up a new Forum Topic or Trail Notes in the South Upper Truckee Forum.

Unregistered visitors can leave comments on any of the Forum pages, but cannot post their own pages in the Forums. Registered Backpackers can post up their own Forum Pages and Topics that easily and attractively display your pictures and embed your videos in a rich text presentation.

Leave your comments or questions below, or Register to post up you own pages on this Forum,  or the Backpacker's Forum that covers your topic.
