CHALLENGING DAY HIKE
13.0 miles 2050' elevation gain
This is a fairly difficult hike. It features rewarding views over Childs Meadow and Mill Creek's valley.
The goal, Spencer Meadows, is a large high mountain meadow with a decent campsite.
If you follow the map closely, you may see where to cut down the ridge a few hundred feet to view the interesting Canyon Creek Falls.
You may choose a day with
cooler weather for this hike as it is lower elevation, and
some parts of Wild Cattle Mountain are sparsely forested.
