This is a great hike with one sustained uphill section with amazing views and great wildflowers at the top. On either side of the pass the hiking is easy with the exception of two stream crossings. Best hiked just after the snow has melted as the trail is mostly exposed and it can get pretty hot. Great place to spot wildlife including elk, deer and bison. Some beautiful campgrounds can be had on the crystal clear Gallatin River for an amazing overnight. A loop can be made by coming in on the fawn pass trail and cutting over on the link trail on the backside.
