I followed the directions to the trailhead from this app. It takes you to a small parking area with a dirt road leading from it. No trail sign at all except for a real small one in the corner of the bulletin board mentioning Fall River. We walked up the dirt road for about a mile and it splits into two dirt roads. We took the right one as that lined up with the trail map in this app. It goes for a total of 3 miles from the parking lot and then dead ends. Maybe we should have went left at the fork. Only thing we saw was a bunch of cows close to the road.

Was on a time limit, so unfortunately was about a mile short of the lake. But even though the beginning was a brutal sequence of switchbacks, it offered stunning views the whole way through. The trail is also incredibly well maintained and didn't have a single problem the whole way through.

We forked off and tried to make it to Louis lake, but it was getting dark. Gorgeous hike, awesome water falls, but never made it to the lake. We started heading back a little to close to dusk and came across the path of an angry moose or bear. We didn't stick around to see what we pissed off!

This was a great trail with some amazing views of the surrounding table top ranges. The water level was very high so forging the first stream involved getting wet, but the rest of the hike was in good shape. There is still snow in the pass and it is very wet up top so it is a little difficult to navigate the whole top prairie area. It seems very lightly traveled and very serene.

Still lots of snow and a bit of mud in June, made parts difficult.

We loved this adventure in 2007. 27 switchbacks as you begin. We camped at 10000' and fished three lakes: Hidden Lake, Upper Ross and Lower Ross.  5 lb rainbows in Lower Ross. Walk over granite batholiths to Upper Ross for robust Cutts and snakey Cutts at Hidden Lake below. We camped alone but our trip followed a rambunctious and poorly supervised Boy scout troop who had damaged the thin and ancient white bark pines by rolling glacial erratics from the tops of the batholiths... ☹️ great hike. We even found wild blueberries. Beautiful!

We hiked this trail in 2006. In 3 nights of backpacking and internal day hikes, we never saw another hiker, nor tracks of human hikers. Plenty of bear tracks however! What a wild and beautiful place. Bring bear spray and hang your food and cooking gear high and away from your camp. Marvelous.

Marked down because it starts in a horse pasture which can be very dusty or muddy. The mud was so thick it clung to our boots making us turn back before the lake. Brooks Lake is gorgeous, however.

I did this trail for a 3 day Gannett peak climb. I found this easier to do than the titcomb basin side. There is water pretty much the whole way. Very scenic.

Beautiful hike. The wildflowers in late July and early August have to be seen to be believed.

I took 18 guys from Dallas to do this by backpacking in and doing some fly-fishing. I was the leader of the group. This was one of my early days of hiking. I was told that it was an easy hike. I was four months out from having my entire right leg re-aligned. Let's just say I struggled. The switch backs the first several miles straight up are tough with a fifty pound pack on. Beautiful country though with awesome views. I want to go back now that I'm more experienced and in better shape.

Glacier Trail was my first backcountry camping and mountaineering experience. This past August 2012 I traveled with six other students and two instructors from the Central Wyoming College to make a summit attempt on Gannett Peak. We began at the Whisky Mountain Trailhead near Dubois, Wyo. and hiked straight through ending in Pinedale, Wyo.

It was an amazing 11 days in the backcountry. We did successfully reach the summit of Gannett and spent a few days in the cirque. It was a hard push on the way out because we only had permission to camp 10 miles beyond the Cirque. We had to climb Bonney Pass and Knapsack Col before reaching our target campsite. It was a great adventure.

Easy hike. Spent the night on Austin Peak in order to take some photos late evening and early in the morning. Cold night with some high winds.
