May 2017 backed packed to the meadow, you cross two ridges on the way. After the first you go down to a stream that would be a nice place to camp on its own. Before crossing the second ridge the trail is rough, we experienced a number of patches of snow. Upon crossing this ridge that includes a period of near flat ground the trail makes a steep decent to the meadow. This part of the trail had large batches of snow on some of the down slopes. We camped in Whipple Valley and day hiked to North Valley, great location if there while the water is. This will go on my annual hiking list.

Features plenty of switchbacks and the elevation changes are significant. You really have to do this hike before august if you want water. Once the snow melts the water is gone. Definitely recommend doing the full loop through to the brown trail so you can see all of St George.

The golden time to do this hike is from late May to mid July. Once you actually reach the whipple meadow be prepared for tons of water. Bring a pair of sandals and keep your boots dry or neoprene socks if you don't mind the water.

When you get to the saddle at the top the trail is hard to find
