Steep, but quick.   Sucess!

Steep hike, but went quick. Great views of the area. But they were impeded by thick smoke for us.

Should probably do it again  Sucess!

2:06 round trip. It was all in the clouds, no views, no reason to dawdle.

Traversed Avalanche, continued to Hoyt  Sucess!

This is a straightforward walk-up, with the steepest part right after the trailhead. There are trails that allow you to continue to the saddle between Avalanche and Hoyt, and do what you will. (I continued to Hoyt, which I recommend.)

Spectacular view  Sucess!

Eighty five minutes up following a pair of ladies who drove a truck to the TH with Arkansas plates. Excellent trail and the view over the lake was easily the best in the park from what I experienced. Nice rock cairns on top too.

Avalanche Peak  Sucess!

Did this one on my drive day back home after a long week of peakbagging in Montana and Wyoming. I had done Windy Peak earlier in the day but still had plenty of time to do this one on my drive though Yellowstone NP. Great hike on a very nice trail.

Great View as always  Sucess!

Hiked many times since 1986. In July I take my spotting scope to the top and look over the basins to the north, west and east. I have seen several grizzlies in the basins in the middle of the day.

Avalanche  Sucess!

Climbed with Hoyt. Met some Canadians on top who, once again, proved that Canadians are the nicest people ever.

Avalanche Peak  Sucess!

Hiked to the summit behind my twin daughters (age 11). A great hike and a great day. Memorable experience for all.

Short and steep  Sucess!

Nice climb despite the wildfire haze from the summit. Very steep and direct.

Great hike  Sucess!

Great views, although a little smokey...can't wait to hike it again on a clear day...

Short Easy Hike  Sucess!

The route description makes it sound steep and heinous but it turned out to be a pleasant hike. Some recent storms had put out all the wildfires so we had superb views.
