Bearpaw Meadow makes a good base camp where you can go on a few great day hikes. It's roughly 12 miles from Crescent Meadow with breathtaking panorama views for most of the trail.



From Crescent Meadow we take the High Sierra Trail all the way to Bearpaw Meadow. Then we go for day hikes to Hamilton Lake and Tamarack Lake.

General Notes and Observations:
There is a campground at Bearpaw Meadow that makes a great base camp. There is also a High Sierra Camp, much like the ones in Tuolumne Meadows. The view from here is awe inspiring. It has canvas tents, a bathroom, showers and a mess tent that serves great food. There is also a wilderness Ranger Station.
