Day HikerDunraven Pass Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2010

Day Hiker

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.

This is a popular hike but not crowded in September. It was nice and windy on top. Also did several other hikes that day.

Hiked from Dunraven pass up the road. Nasty storms moved in just as I got back to the car.

Not one of my favorite hikes to say the least. Hiking up a road with a lot of people is not really my thing but due to time constraints and non-hiking traveling companions it was the only option I had. Good views and saw some cool wildlife.

Windy and cold at the top. Great views- we could see the Tetons 75 miles to the south. There were bighorn sheep on the trail, grazing a few feet away as we passed.

Good hike up a mountain. I liked how you can just about see the whole park from the top.

Short hike up the road- not many views due to big CA wildfires. Lots of bighorn sheep right on the trail.

Nice steady grade for a bike and a quick fun down hill. Lots of sheep and a coyote. Spectacular view of the Park. Highly recommended, lots of families do it.

A little tame, being passed by a maintenance pickup on the way down. Great views though, plus nice to get out of the wind at the top.

A fun, easy to follow, busy trail in September. Saw one black bear and ran into many other hikers who had seen more bears. Splendid views from the top.
