Probably one of my favorite hikes ever! Such a gorgeous setting - especially during wild flower season (we went early August), and so peaceful to not see anyone else on trail. But it’s super steep - especially that last mile to the summit! So coming down was brutal - but overall worth it!

Hiked this on 8/31/19. Gratifying views of the valley come early on, and stay mostly visible all the way up. The 360 view at the top is stunning...especially because the only evidence of civilization is the dirt road you came in on, and the remains of the shelter you’re standing on. We didn’t see anyone the entire trip up and back. The first 3.2 miles shown on the AllTrails map is a driveable road (at least when we went).

This trail is easy and most of it in the trees. It is a fun trail for adults and children. We saw a mana moose and her calf at Slide Lake.

This was a great hike, but incredibly difficult. It’s about six miles from the trail head to the lower Crow Creek lake. This part is fairly mild and very enjoyable. There are only a couple of hairy spots that beg extreme caution. If you plan to go the extra two and half miles to the summit, be prepared to progress slowly. It’s extremely vertical with lots of loose rock (think low class 2). Proper shoes with excellent grip is a must, and trekking poles wouldn’t hurt. Cheers.

We hiked this on July 2, 2019. The trail head from the road is about 3.8 miles to the summit, but we lost the trail in the snow drifts as we got close to 10000’ - that necessitated climbing up the rocky slopes until we found a small trail along the ridge that led to Wyoming Peak. Where there was no snow, the trail was in very good condition for hiking and did not seem too steep, except for the last climb to the summit. Might try this again in a few weeks or in August.

Nice day hike. The trailhead is a little hard to find, just after a sharp corner of the dirt road. Wyo Peak is the North peak with the broken down fire lookout building. Amazing views on a clear day.

Backpacked into crow creek lakes, set up camp and caught a couple fish for supper. Next day we day hiked up to mount fitz and enjoyed the amazing views. Returned to camp. Then hiked out the following morning. On our second trip here, we did a day hike to the south crow creek waterfall which is inside a small cave. Contact us for details of how to find it.

The lake is beautiful getting to trailhead was a bit rough as the road is rocky and deep runoff ruts. Be careful about one third of the way in the trail forks and Someone has turned the arrow left . This takes you to the top of the mountain you need to go right to get to the lake . We hiked an extra 5 miles before we came back and found the lake.

I hiked this trail in 2016 and actually carried my one year old the whole way! Parts of the trail are steep! But the Lake is beautiful! We also carried a Canoe up there and played in the water! Absolutely beautiful and you can hike around the lake as well!

Great trail and scenery but leave fishing poles in car. The lake has drained out bone dry.

Beautiful lake, but it takes some time to get here. High clearance vehicle is required to travel down the access road. Final 1.3 miles is by foot. Several fallen trees block the path, so you can get a little closer with a 4 wheeler but not the entire way. We backpacked in and spent two nights at the lake without seeing a single other person there. Water is crystal clear, and fishing is great - we rarely went more than 2-3 minutes without hooking another fish (released them). There are several primitive campsites in the area. Two are at the bottom of a small hill a few hundred feet east of the lake. Mosquitoes are very thick there, but they are protected from the wind. One is at the top of the small hill east of the lake - beautiful views while laying in your hammock, but the winds blow pretty strong there all day and night. There do not appear to be any sites south of the lake, but we found a few other spots on the north side that also appeared to be windy when we walked through. This area is pristine - come prepared for solitude, and pack everything out.

Really easy, short hike. Shaded. If you go mid-summer in the summer the lake is full and a beautiful turquoise color. Later or earlier in the year, it isn't full or it drys up.

I've done this twice, once in early July and once in late August. There was still snow patches in July and snow along the ridge to the peak so we only went to the lakes that time. Beautiful flowers. Consistently steep for most of the trail and a few streams to pass. Beautiful day hike.

Beautiful hike with wildflowers, snow banks and waterfalls. Had to cross several small streams but not too difficult. We only went as far as Wagner Lake but the GPS measured 8.6 miles R/T.

Beautiful trail, I hiked it over the 4th of July weekend and did not see another person on the trail. Breathtaking waterfall and flowers galore. The problem I had was the snow stoped me just short of getting to the peak. That said, not getting to the peak just gives me the excuse the try again later. I'll be back!
