About the trip

Mount Washburn

Mount Washburn is the highest point in the Washburn Range - named for the leader of an 1870 expedition of the area.

The trail's switchbacks offer views over all of Yellowstone and you may even spot bighorn sheep grazing on the slopes of the high peak. From the summit, you'll have the best views in the park, making the 1,400 feet in elevation gain worth the effort.
