This is an amazing hike. I did it on Xmas Eve with light snow and it was as challenging as it gets (used snow shoes when needed). Would not advise doing what I did, but you won't be disappointed any time. Amazing views. One of the best hikes in the area.

This is a beautiful area with a great deal of potential. Due to inaccuracies in the route provided by AllTrails and the very poor trail maintenance, I would discourage anyone from attempting this trail without map and compass or GPS. At 2.35 miles, where the trail leaves the road on the left, there was no marking or sign of any kind: I did build a small cairn. From that point on, there are numerous trees down across the trail and in many places the trail is completely overgrown. It is not too difficult to generally stay on the trail, but don't expect tree blazes or signs of any kind. Above all, once leaving the road, do not expect the route on AllTrails to correspond with an actual trail. By viewing the AllTrails map with the satellite layer it is easy to see that the route deviates from the actual trail at times by more than 200 yards.

Great conditions for the glacier. I did it solo without any issues (2 days hike in, summit day, one day hike out). Due to warm temperatures it is important to start early and be down by noon. Overall, awesome trip, and great views from the summit.

If you're in the area and want a hike that will give you an amazing view of the Teton, Absaroka, and Wind River ranges, Whiskey Mountain Trail is the one you want! The wind was helacious when I went on this hike with gusts up to 70mph, but the experience was worth it! It was a long day hike (8.5 hours) from the Wildlife Viewing Station to the summit then down through Whiskey Creek Canyon and back to the Wildlife Viewing Station. Hiking this in June guarentees you beautiful views of wildflowers, elk herds, and snow-capped mountains.
It's definitely a challenging hike, so trekking poles are highly advised. Also, bring extra layers and lots of water! There are no places to fill up while on the trail. Snowbanks offer an emergency source of water, but only through June since they melt by July. Bear spray is also required in this area. My group saw several bear tracks and scat in addition to fresh wolf prints. Overall, an awesome hike!

Just got back from Gannett Peak. We went in on the Glacier Trail. This is a very demanding hike. Two very difficult climbs. One going up to Burro Flats on the way in and coming out of Honey Moon Lake on the way out. This was a good year for snow, which I think makes it a little more climbable. We gave ourselves two days to try for the summit, which turned out to be a good plan. Day one it snowed, rained and the wind was app. 40 mph. Went back to camp and waited for day two. Woke up to beautiful blue skies, no wind and warm temps. Made the summit and it was thrilling.

Anyone been up to Gannett in late June during an average snowpack via the Glacier Trail? A few friends and I are heading up end of June and trying to decide if we should bring skis or snowshoes.

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.

A high snow year made the route to the summit completely snow covered even in late June, but an amazing climb with views well worth the work!

Our 2005 backpack trip spent 2 nights along Frontier Creek. In a camp at the edge of a meadow, we hung our food and gear and fished for wild cutthroat trout. We hiked a day trip to Cougar Pass and overlooked the Thoroughfare and South Fork of Shoshone river. Elk, bighorn sheep in the highest country, and juncos nesting near camp. Other hikers passed by - a through hiker from Brooks Lake and a couple in their 70's with llamas who wore bear bells. This area has burned since we hiked it and may have changed.

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.

Definitely a hard trail. We attempt to summit but did not make the top. We were camping further from the base of the mountain than we had anticipated. On the mountain one of the snow bridges collapsed while we were there it was definitely a bit late to summit. Part of the trail was washed out by glacial melt. But by far one of the best backpacking trips I have done. Bear spray and bug spray highly recommended. Mosquitoes and horse flies were thick. Saw about 25 people around the base of the mountain maybe 3 on the glacial trail leading to Gannett.

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.

We did not bring climbing gire so we only went to bonneys pase (19 miles in)
This trail has everything you need in a good outing. Nice well maintained trail, awesome scenery, lots of wild life. The trail starts in the high pines and ends in the tundra. The 6,000 ft climb is sprinkled with high mountain lakes full of fish just dying to get out of the water and in to the pan.
Trip should take you 5 days, 4 if youre moving. You can camp any were along the trail I would sugest camping at one of the lakes between miles 7 and 10 the first night then making a base camp in the Titcomb basin at the end of day 2. The Pass is just 4 miles from there.
Be advised :
This is bear country so bring some spray.
You have never seen this many bugs bring nets not spray.
During the summer melt the trail can become the creek be ready to walk in the mud
The summit can be a dangerous scramble with falling rocks and snow
