|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
The first day we hiked 7 miles in to Dollar Lake and camped there. The next day we left at a ridiculously late 11:30am to hike the peak. We didn't do the chute/toilet bowl, we followed the trail over Gunsight Pass, cut across Painters Basin, then trail again up to Anderson Pass. It was about 6.5 miles to the peak. We left the peak at 6:30pm, and because it was already so late, we decided to shortcut it back, so we went down the southeast ridge and straight down to Painters, hiked back to camp in the dark and arrived at 10:45pm, about 5 miles back. The next day we hiked a mile over to see Henry's Fork Lake and spent about 2 hrs watching 2 big moose lumber around. We hiked out the next day, stopped and fished the river for a while and caught several small fish on flies. None bigger than 6-8 inches, but beautiful cutthroats. The country up there is stunning, amazing, and beautiful, and the views from the peak are incredible. The weather was clear and in the 70s the whole time, just perfect.
