Manzanita provides access to the Meissner Shelter from Tangent (easiest approach) and is one of the most popular trails with families and beginners. The trail winds through open country and makes for a pleasant ski on a sunny day or on a good full moon evening, with wonderful views of Broken Top, South Sister to the north and Bend to the east.  The trail connects with Snowbush on the east side of the shelter, dropping down the Meissner plateau for a more challenging climb/ descent to/from the shelter.
