The upper road to the trailhead will be closed until July 1 (at which time they will start charging for parking up there), so we started at Alta and took the Albion Meadows trail up to the trailhead. Wildflowers are just starting to bloom and the upper meadow just before the final rise to the crest is covered in yellow flowers. Elevation gains from the bottom were brutal, but worth it. From Alta it was 6 miles round trip.
