The River Trail is much more forested which provides plenty of shade and fewer maginificent views. This trail also seems to be more crowded which is another drawback. You get the growing sense that you are returning to civilization.



But you're not there yet. Sure, you can see headlights at night from the cars heading down into Reds Meadow, but nature is still all around you.

As you approach Agnew Meadows you begin to climb above the trees. The morning mountains to the South present a fine view.



From that same spot you can look East towards the mountains. And as you continue South the view inspires you during the last few miles to think about where you can go next time. After all, there's an aweful lot of mountains down that way too.
