NileGuide Expert tip:
The ranger staff here are some of the park's best naturalists.
Open only in the summer, this is the place to start your visit if you're arriving from the east, or just to get oriented to the park's high country. The building is part of a historic CCC camp and has a few exhibits, a nice little bookstore, and the ever-helpful rangers and YA volunteers and staff to answer questions. There are restrooms outside. The TMVC is a half mile from the campground. Several hiking trails take off from here, with the trail across the street, over to Soda Springs being an excellent, easy introduction to this vast subalpine meadow. You're at 8600' so expect to gasp a little.
