The hike from Middle Piney Lake will involve a full day’s hike and much of the accent is full of heavy breathing. From Middle Piney, follow the trail along the South side of the lake, then past the lake as it crosses over to the North side of the valley and past Wahelo Falls. Soon after the falls you take a right at the fork in the trail and pretty much climb straight up to the Wyoming Range National Recreational Trail. Take a right to follow the range trail northward. The old observation building atop Wyoming Peak is by then visible, but the trail circles around the mountain to the Northeast side and through Fireball Valley. Once you reach the “saddle” on the rim of Fireball, you descend into the next valley while the Wyoming Range trail veers North (to the right) and the trail to Wyoming Peak (high above on the left) disappears. You have to make your own trail up to the saddle between Wyoming Peak and Mt. Coffin and then an easy Alpine lung-busting sprint to the top of the Wyoming Range.
