This is a true loop hike that starts and finishes at the Meridian TH. For this description, travel was counter-clockwise (Ridge line from south to north). The picture below shows the ridgeline.
Start by taking the trail that heads north towards Bulldog Saddle. As soon as you leave the parking lot, there is a split---stay to the right (East). Within about 500 feet a trail splits off to the east.
Follow this trail for around 2 miles until its terminus at the south end of the mountain. The trail ending is rather obvious as it abruptly gets smaller and turns directly up the ridge. There are lots of cairns which lead up the ridge line.
Once on the ridge line, the route requires boulder hopping, scrambling and a few down climbs. Exposure is minimal. The terrain very much resembles that of the nearby Pass Mountain ridge line. About a 1/3 of the way up, you will slightly descend to a clearing like area and after a short climb, we encountered a fire pit.
From here, look down to the west at Boulder Saddle.
Note: Do not leave the ridge line! After descending from Peak 3169 to the first saddle, we thought it would be easier to skirt around the mountain rather than scramble along the ridge. We were very wrong. This half mile to rejoin the trail before descending to Boulder saddle took us as long as the rest of the trip put together.
Note 2: The trail heading up the ridge on the south side of the mountain was relatively worn and easy to follow. The trail coming up from Boulder saddle was just the opposite. For this reason, I recommend going the south to north route.
