Hiked with two friends from Dunraven Pass parking area on a cold, windy May day. Even though it was very cloudy, we could still see the Tetons far off to the south, some 75 miles away. Fantastic views throughout. This hike spurred my interest in scrambling/climbing more difficult mountains, to which I'll always be grateful!

Also climbed from Dunraven Pass on 5/28/09 with my girlfriend Becky. Snow was definitely an issue, but never encountered any dangerously steep patches. Summit views were quite clear, and the views were of course spectacular.

At the time, it was my highest peak and I had such a sense of accomplishment. It was July and there were still snowbanks on the trail at some of the higher elevations which amazed and amused me and my brothers. Washburn was a fun hike and one that challenged me without putting me in over my head. Beautiful views on top.

No much mountaneering here, but there is a very nice view from the top and we saw a huge male grizzly on the way up:

I made sure, I wasn't the slowest guy amongst all the spectators ;0)

Northern route - speedy ascent 1h to the summit and 30 min back. The girl waited in the car ;-)

Nice views over Yellowstone. Very windy up there. Saw a big fire in the eastern part of Y.

Had to do a double take at the twenty something guy hiking up the 'road' with trekking poles and a climbing helmet on.

I knew I should have worn my helmet. What was I thinking!

I forget the exact date. We climbed through a blizzard while some of the roads were still closed.

Did it on a family vacation through the west. I especially loved the view of Yellowstone Canyon from the top. I also remember it being very windy from the top.

Mary and I did a day hike over Washburn while we were passing through Yellowstone on our way from the Tetons to Devils Tower. We arrived in the park late in the afternoon on Aug 12 and hiked to Lone Star Geyser, just in time for a major eruption. The following day we did the hike up Washburn, starting at Dunraven Pass and continuing on the North Spur trail past the hot springs to the Canyon (where we hitched a ride back to our car). We saw lots of bighorn sheep on the grassy ridge on the descent from the summit.

Climbed this during a "driving" tour of Yellowstone. Too bad I was ill that day. I might have enjoyed it more.

It was teaming with tourists, a jeep road, and very easy, but this was extremely rewarding for me because my 6 year old son did this hike with me and made it to the top. This was his first real mountain summit and we saw about 50 bighorn along the road that were very tame.

the hike was on a road, there were tame bighorn along the way, and it was crawling with tourists.

It only took an hour or two, but it was barely worth it.

Yellowstone is fantastic. If your time is limited in Yellowstone, I highly suggest other points of interest unique to the Park.

Still, a fun and easy hike - though as a fat elementary kid, I remember struggling a little. (Then again, I think I was expressing to my folks that I'd rather be on a roller coaster. C'est l'vie.)

Don't recall the exact date, may even have the year mixed up...

We hiked up a jeep road up the backside, then found as we looped down the singletrack back to the cars that a better, more beautiful trail was to be had. Bummer I suppose, but still very gorgeous.

Attempted Lake Solitude in the Tetons on the same trip, but it was not to be for this fat kid; success was not seen there until the slimmer days of high school.

This was a fun little hike at the end of a long day of exploring. I went up with my dad and brother. This really was the easiest climb I have ever done, but very enjoyable and relaxing!
