To preserve the integrity of fragile high alpine meadows, it is better to camp at lower elevations and take day rides to visit these locations. Horses, goats and llamas - the majority of the trails in the Arc Dome, Alta Toquima, and Table Mountain Wildernesses permit stock use, and there are a number of licensed outfitters in the area that can provide you with a memorable day- or overnight trip. Several trailheads provide stock loading facilities and Pine Creek campground permits overnight stays with stock. Check with the Forest Service in Austin or Tonopah for more information about permitting, or contact one of our local guide/outfitters.
