As of September 2017, The route that is featured on the map for this hike is incorrect. The route posted by Monica Lough is the correct one, and is accessed from Mountain Home Ranch Rd. The incorrect route shown on the map is accessed from Ingalls Creek road and in our opinion should be avoided. The trail is actually a dirt forest service road and a gate blocks access to the first few miles requiring even more walking along the road than is shown on the map. Suggest doing a little research before heading out for the trailhead to make sure you can find the trailhead shown on Monica Lough’s map.

Good vertical gain. The view of the lakes from the top is beautiful. Not too many bugs and pleasant temps in late May.

Once you turn off Blewett Pass onto the dirt road, be aware that it will take about an hour and you will need a 4x4 vehicle with clearance. The hike to the saddle of Wedge Mountain is fairly steep, gaining about 2600 ft in 2.5 miles. Most people stop at the saddle to enjoy the view overlooking Snow Lakes, Nada Lake, and the Enchantments. If you're feeling more adventurous, head left to Wedge Mountain peak. There is no defined trail to the peak but finding a route is easy. Travel over two false peaks, the third is the actual Wedge Peak. There is a rock scramble to reach the top. Not recommended for the faint of heart. This is a great hike that's not well known and not on most maps.
