Completed July 7 through a ranger-led hike with the legendary Pat Hagan. A beautiful hike that was made so much more special by Pat pointing out the various medicinal plants growing along the mountain and identifying the birds through their calls. Very mild and not too windy at the pass, but good to bring layers as always. We also got bearsprayed at the beginning by some solo hiker up the trail, whether or not she did it on purpose or accidentally is unknown, but this is a reminder to keep your safety latch on! I feel bad for the bears now! We added the short twin falls walk onto this, but didn’t actually visit No Name.

Completed 8/4. Trail in amazing shape. Did not go up to the pass but stopped at No Name. Added on the falls at the end; however, for a refreshing swim. Trail up to No Name is much more roller coaster and much less straight up.

This trail is absolutely amazing, easily my favorite hike in the park. It’s a HAUL though and our GPS told us we went about 18.6 miles and it took us just under 9.5 hours. The hike itself is beautiful, wildlife and wildflowers everywhere and the views from the top are second to none. About halfway through the hike you’ll hike the side of a pretty steep mountain and the trail is extremely narrow along it and would definitely not be a spot you would want to get caught in during a bad storm.

We tried to do the entire loop today, but the winds were unbelievable- approaching Dawson’s pass we were literally blown off our feet a couple of times. We gave it up and came back down the way we came. The guide book says the pass has been known to have winds at 100 mph, I’d say this was a 100mph kind of day. The trail was lovely and well maintained. The views were really great. I would highly recommend this trail to the fit and stout-hearted.

Great trail! Did this yesterday with my boyfriend and we had a blast! We took Two Medicine boat tour, which cut off about 4 miles round trip for ~$13 each. We hiked up to the top constantly surrounded by wildflowers in the old growth forest and had the lake completely to ourselves. We did hike through quite a bit of snow and the ground was very soggy where we sat to eat lunch by the waterfront. The campground is covered in about a foot of snow in most spots. Great hike to the lake and we ended with stopping by Twin Falls before catching the boat back!

Amazing hike, the first 3 miles were easy and mostly flat, the last 2 miles is really where you gain all your elevation. The views were amazing, you are surrounded by mountians and cliff sides. YOU WILL SEE WILDLIFE. Maybe.... all i know is we saw bear prints, and bear scat, but no bear. We did see 2 moose that were about 20 feet away! Really beautiful hike and well worth it.

We didn't make it to the lake. We decided to hit Twin Falls and head back. Fantastic 6.6 mile out and back trip. We were looking for fall color and wildlife and were not disappointed seeing goats, sheep and deer. No bears until we drove out of the campground. Very easy like with very rewarding views over the entire length.
