The little falls on the way up are amoung the highlights to this trail. The 360' view from the top is really impressive.

Beautiful area with a lot of foot traffic and their dogs. Recommend somewhere else during the weekend and save this one for a weekday.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2012


Even when attempting a slightly later than usual alpine ascent time of 7am @ the TH, STILL ran into several people on the trail (biggest pet-peave about Hyalite). Topped out on the peak at 10am, dropped down the nearest saddle on the bowl, and hit up whichever peak is next to Hyalite Peak (more technical - a lot of bouldering / scrambling in loose / terrible rock and knife edge ridges. Was going to attempt Fridley, but a thunderstorm brewing overhead made for a quick but fun hike back towards the peak and a ~1500ft glissade into the bowl. Calmed down a bit once back at the tree line. Brought crampons and ice axe just in case, crampons weren't used and ice axe only for glissade. Whole hike is total reward (if you can get up early enough to dodge the ridiculous amount of trail traffic) - scenic waterfalls around ever bend. My roundtrip with other peak included was probably pushing over 17mi

Saw an unbelievable group of bighorns in the rut as they locked horns. Hope to be back this summer for the backbone race.

ivyonupWorth the Effort  Sucess!


Hiked Hyalite Peak two summers in a row - not only is it worth the effort, but it is a hike worth repeating. I would like to continue on the Continental Divide trail the next time I do this hike.

long haul with a big load. this was one of many peaks to climb along the gallatin crest backpack trip of 5 days and 50 miles. high head winds all the way, but pretty good weather otherwise.

Did a great traverse of the Gallatins from Porcupine Creek trailhead to Hyalite Creek trailhead in two days. Summited two named peaks, The Sentinel and Hyalite along the way.

Alcas24Can't believe the snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2008


It's great to see all that snow still up there. Snow the whole way from the lake up to the ridge. I climbed straight up the gut of the bowl using an ax and kicking steps. The glissade down was really fun.

vcrewpc06First stop on Hyalite Ridge traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2007


After summiting Hyalite Peak, traversed west around the ridge to Divide Peak and met up with the Squaw Creek trail to make a loop out of it. Some challenging terrain, but the scenery was more than worth it. Beautiful area.

ibeksBeautiful Hike  Sucess!


This is one of my favorite hikes. Easy grade through beautiful forests.There are numerous waterfalls along the trail.

I first went up the trail in late May, 2004. There was snow on a good part of the trail. Turned back halfway up the switchbacks to the saddle as I was wearing tennis shoes, which naturally offered no traction at all on the steep snow.

Went back in July, 2005 for a snow-free hike to the top.
