Trail was mostly snow packed. Climbed Washburn to finish the second challenge of the Yellowstone Half Marathon weekend. Great views. Loved it!

Very enjoyable half day hike with MD. Saw bears and bison on the drive in from the northern side of the park. Saw tons of marmots and bighorn sheep on the hike itself.

Finally made it up with the whole family. We had tried it several times years ago when the older kids were little and the younger kids hadn't arrived yet. I carried my 4 year old at least half way up and probably 3/4 of the way down so we could hurry as the weather was iffy. Our up time was 1.5 hours and down time was one hour. It rained all morning so we weren't really planning on it but once we pulled into the parking lot, it looked like it might clear up so we went for it. The sun broke out and we had a rather warm hike despite the rain all morning.

Powerfully windy at top - almost knocked me over. Much of view obscured by smoke from Cygnet, Range, Dewdrop and Dewdrop II fires.

I took the Chittenden Road route. From the summit I could see the Tetons, Beartooths, etc. I also saw some bighorn sheep. A fun mountain to hike.

Took the Dunraven Pass side. Good for a quote trip and change of pace from everything else Yellowstone has to offer. Saw some good wildlife also - goats, marmot and just missed the big horns.

We used the Chittenden Road route, which was clear in late June in a heavy snow year; the other route still had 3 feet of snow. Temps in low/mid-50s, winds about 30-35 mph on the top, with fantastic views all around, including the Tetons.

Did this midday, hardly an ideal time due to crowds, to kill a few hours between lodge nights at Roosevelt and Lake. Nice views, but can't say I really enjoyed it because of all the people. With family or friends, it would have been more enjoyable under the circumstances, or I should have gone up very early in the morning. But it was better than no mountain at all.

Had a wonderful time. It was very windy at the summit but still enjoyed what is perhaps the best view of the park. Sadly no wildlife to see but did hear wapiti bugling off in the distance. No its not a mountaineering feet to reach this summit, but it is worth the short amount of time to do. Enjoy!

Excellent day with very clear sky, so great views of everything, including the Tetons. DayHikerJr hiked most of the way up and down without being carried, which is good because he is getting too big for that. I'm really glad I didn't get stuck carrying him for the entire 7 miles round-trip.

We had some close-up views of a female grizzly and two cubs near the road afterward. Thanks to this hike for bringing us to the Dunraven Pass area at the right time, because all three bears came within 20 feet of our car which was stopped on the shoulder when they walked by, grazing on the plants near the road.

Earlier, a fox carrying several dead rodents in its mouth ran right by us on the (wide) trail, trotting up the trail as we were hiking down. It was rather odd. I managed to get the whole thing on video.

The last time I was on top of Washburn was with my brother many years back. We watched the sunset on a perfectly calm evening from the comfort of a heated room, incredible. This last memorial day my wife and I saw some huge grizzlies high up on the peak from the Dunraven Pass road. Bring your pepper spray.
