Mehrten and Alta Meadows Professional Review and Guide
"Journey through the serenity of a red fir forest to the magnificence of flower-filled meadows and wonderful views of impressive peaks. The 12-mile round-trip is within the range of hikers in good condition, while excellent campsites will lure backpackers who want extra time to fully enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The first cluster of campsites near Mehrten Meadow reposes in the cool shade of forest, a mere 4 miles from the trailhead. The second set along the fringe of Alta Meadow sits beneath the ramparts of Tharps Rock and Alta Peak. Beyond Alta Meadow, a crosscountry route to the alpine realm of Moose Lake and The Tableland will tantalize offtrail buffs."
