This is a fairly difficult hike.  It features rewarding views over Childs Meadow and Mill Creek's valley.

The goal, Spencer Meadows, is a large high mountain meadow with a decent campsite.

If you follow the map closely, you may see where to cut down the ridge a few hundred feet to view the interesting Canyon Creek Falls.

You may choose a day with cooler weather for this hike as it is lower elevation, and some parts of Wild Cattle Mountain are sparsely forested.
