Mount Hood from Summit Meadow
Summit Meadow is as historic as it is scenic. This beautiful natural meadow located near Trillium Lake is worth a visit if you're in the area.
Summit Meadow is a wetlands area that was used by the native people to harvest medicinal herbs and roots. The meadow was later used by the Oregon Trail pioneers as one of the last stops on the old Oregon Trail. It gave the immigrants a chance to rest and graze their animals before the last pull into the Willamette Valley.
