From Pawnee Pass Trail (see description of Hike 11) to reach the summit of Pawnee Peak requires an uncomplicated trudge in thin air up the Continental Divide from the pass. Hikers who are so tired that they lie down to rest are rewarded by fine views of very rugged peaks framed by tiny tundra flowers glowing with various colors. The blooms provide an honorable reason to refrain from rising.
