Default Blooming Meadows hike south BC 3rd of August??

Hi
I will be traveling from Vancouver BC to Trail BC, August 18-20. Can you tell if there are trails with alpine meadows that should be in full bloom by then anywhere along my route??

Looking for a hiking trail, about 4h total hiking time. We have a SUV.

I'm from Montreal and do not know the area at all.

Thanks a lot for your help

Meadows will be past bloom by then. Check out the Heather Trail in Manning Park though. You can drive to the subalpine and hike meadows and see marmots right from your car.

Idaho Peak near New Denver (about 100km north of Trail) is also a great spot to see wildflowers.
But I'm not sure how many flowers will be left especially after the recent hot and dry weather.
Road goes into the alpine but check for possible fire closures of back roads.
