Whitesides Meadow Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a wonderful ridge-top ramble to the vast meadows at the northwest corner of Emigrant Wilderness. Whitesides Meadow is just one of many possible destinations for this hike and is an ideal location for a base camp for further exploration. (Please note: Cattle are authorized to graze the meadows from mid-July through late September. Until the U.S. government provides the funds to buy out the grazing rights, hikers will have to be prepared to put up with a bit of a mess.)"
