McGee Meadow Loop

11.5 miles round trip
Take the right fork of the road at the closure and ski past the houses until the road turns to a trail. The trail soon joins the road to Fish Creek Campground and the Inside North Fork Road. Bear left past the campground. The improved road soon turns to a narrow climbing gravel road. From this point it is 3 miles to the first meadow. Continue over the crest of the hill to an orange marker identifing the trail to McGee Meadow. Ski along the northern edge of the meadow until you see the opening for the car pullout to the west, on the Camas Road. After a couple of short uphill sections, the route descends to the road closure. This trip can be done in either direction, but going up the Camas Road is more strenuous.

Wonderful ski to Christiansen Meadows on the Camas Creek Trail. Excellent snow conditions with cold temperatures in the Land of the Sleeping Giants. Thank you the NPS for plowing the Camas Road making easy access to McGee Meadows. We saw zero people on our fantastic 8 mile ski!! No blow down on inside passage (road) or trail.

The McGee Meadow route is tracked to Howe Lake and Christianson Meadow. There are tracks heading south on the Inside North Fork Road, but I did not ski that route, so I do cannot verify if they continue all the way to Fish Creek.
