“Fairly steep meadows finishing with some nice tele meadows below.”— Jesse Arroyo
Follow the popular cross country skin track until you reach the small South Fork Brackett Creek Trailhead. Cross the road's hair pin turn and continue west up the ridge-line. Enjoy views of Bridger Bowl and Bradley's Meadow to the south and Ross Peak to the north.
After roughly 3 miles, the ridge line will begin to ascend to two peaks, the upper being the main access to Texas Meadows. There are plenty of lines off each peak to all aspects and various terrain from roughly 30-40 degrees.
