River crossings were freezing chest high death pools. Only one was actually high but it was very cold, worst river crossing I've done. Besides that is was an awesome hike with a pretty good view. Lost the trail a the top due to snow and just went up the side through a dry patch. Couldn't find the trail up or down from just after the last river crossing but wasn't too difficult to make it up!

Long day spent with little bro on his 1st peak ascent. Great hike, but a little windy on top.

Mountain biked in 4 miles on Stanley Lake trail, then hiked up the rest of the way. Nice little summit with good views of the Sawtooths.

Class 1 walk-up and a great side-trip if you are backpacking on the Sawtooths. Definitely worth it! Hiked up again from Stanley Lake in Oct 2012 (16.6 miles round-trip). Views were hazy from wild fires still smoldering, but weather was beautiful after a cold start.

A friend and I hiked up as a sidetrip while backpacking from Grandjean to Sawtooth Lake. The view is well worth the hike.

Walked up from Grandjean. It was longer than I expected, but obviously worth it.

I've hiked up Observation Peak twice. The first was on July 12, 2002 as a day hike from Stanley Lake trailhead. The second was on September 4, 2005 during a backpacking loop in the Sawtooths.

This is a great intro peak to the range, or good hike with the family.
