A minimum effort yields some of the most gorgeous views and flower-covered meadows in the state. The hike on the Pacific Crest Trail from Harts Pass is gentle enough for a four year old yet awe-inspiring for hikers of all ages. But be prepared for a shock. Across the valley, bulldozer tracks zigzag through beautiful alpine meadows, the work of a modern prospector operating under laws passed 120 years ago and not yet amended to fit the twentieth century.
