Approach

See the Getting There section of the main page for directions. Watch closely for the unmarked trail on the right at about .3 miles on the last road.

Route Description

This route climbs through forest in a general northwest direction. For the first mile and a half or so you will hike past old growth trees and many small shallow ponds. Watch for snakes and newts and lizards on the trail as I saw all 3. Also grouse like to hang out along the trail and scare the daylights out of you as you surprise them and they scatter.

You will come to a junction just after the second significant talus field you cross. To the left is a switchback with a sign for the Battle Ax Trail. Hang a left here and it follows the ridge up with a few switchbacks before the final ridge to the summit.

Note: If you are coming down this trail from the summit, at this junction you will notice there is no Bagby Hot Springs Trail sign but there is a small wooden sign with 544 posted on it a few yards east on the trail.

Essential Gear

None needed.
