Instead of going to Big Piney I took La Barge Creek Rd/Wy 315 west from La Barge. The route trailhead now has a nice sign.

Parked at the old trailhead listed on some maps. The trail does NOT start there and traverse over anymore. So we just ascended the ridge without a trail as it was open and while descending the trail later we ditched it anyways in the rain as it is of a very minor grade more suitable to biking than hiking. Very nice views though. It was heartening to see so many healthy Whitebark pine int he area as well as alot of Clarks nutcracker.

Kessler was at scout camp and the weather in Colorado was looking pretty poor, so Shaylee and I headed north to Wyoming in order to climb Wyoming Peak. We didn't leave until late on Friday, so arrived in Big Piney very late at night.

The next morning, we headed for Middle Piney Lake where we started our climb. After an 8:45 AM start, we made good progress up to the base of the mountain, though there were a couple tricky stream crossings.

Since this was a last minute planned trip, we didn't bring a topo map and only had the sketch map from Hiking Wyoming. We made our way north to Wyoming Peak, where it was cold and windy. The views were really good, including the Grand Teton to the north and the Wind River Mountains to the east.

Shaylee didn't want to spend much time on top, so we headed south, staying on the ridge crest over March Madness Peak, Point 10,905, and Point 10,765 and then to the saddle.

Since we didn't have a topo map, we ended up taking the high route and ended up near the ridge top above the North Fork of Fish Creek We then headed down a rugged avalanche chute to the north and ended up right at Lower Wohelo Falls.

From there, it was a routine walk back to the trailhead. The guidebook said that Wyoming Peak alone was supposed to take 9 hours, but we did the entire round trip in 8 hours, which wasn't too bad for a 10 year old girl and an out of shape dad, considering we did three extra sub summits and took a rough cross country route down.

Nice trip from the west. Lots of snow on the westward facing slopes so the trail was of no use this early in the year.

Went around the north side of the lake and up to the long east ridge to avoid slush in the trees. Much of the upper climb was in a white-out, but there's probably some nice scenery. Trip report.

Greg and I camped near the peak, it was one of the coldest nights we have ever had - especially for Aug. The views were amazing from the summit - this is a great area to see what Wyoming is all about.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2008


Dennis Poulin and I camped all by ourselves at the Sacajawea campground. Hit the TH at 7ish the next morning and followed the trail until the junction with the Wyoming Ridge trail. From there we just went cross country up the South East ridge and that worked out nicely. Lookout structure is still standing and we found two registers and no benchmark. We could look west and see Idaho's Meade and Baird peaks, two that we had climbed the year before. Couldn't see the Grand or the Winds due to haze conditions to the east. Nice hike except for all the ups and downs around the lake.

I have been to this summit 3 times, once from the west and twice from Middle Piney Lake. It is an awesome view, and in summer 2006, it looked like the old lookout was ready to collapse. The crown of the Wyoming Range, a truly magnificent spot to relish in the beauty of Wyoming.

Followed the trial on the west side of the mountain to the top. There is the remnants of an old lookout station on top.

This is one of the greatest summit views in the West. On a clear day, you see the breadth of the Salt River Range, the Wyoming Range (of course), Commissary Ridge, the Winds (including Gannett), the Gros Ventres, and the Grand Teton. And you will probably have no company. Bonus-- the Greys River Road is the most spectacular backcountry road in America that you don't need 4wd to do.
