Hike from the Artist Point parking area to the Heather Meadows Visitor Center and back. With 1,100 feet of elevation gain, you'll have a great thigh workout.

Combine Wild Goose with many of the other short trails in the area to make a full day of exploration, or use the Wild Goose trail to access Swift Creek or Lake Ann.

Please note that camping is prohibited year round from the Bagley Lakes trailhead to the Lake Ann. Further up the trail, camping is open only between mid-November to mid-May.
