A demanding route through the remote and uncrowded heart of the Absaroka Range. As you do for many long backpacking trips, you have to get away from the trailheads for the best hiking. In this case, both the first few miles and the last few miles could be described as slightly boring as you hike through mature lodgepole forests without much topography. However, after breaking out of the lower elevation timberland, it doesn’t get much better than this. One note of caution: This is not a national park or a popular wilderness area. One disadvantage (or advantage?) of this is getting exact distances from maps or signs. Consequently, I had to estimate mileage more than I did for any other trip in this book. This trip is for well-conditioned backpackers. After getting to the top of Speculator Pass you won’t need to hit the Stairmaster machine for a while. But if you want to get ready for this trip, you should spend three hours a day on it. Special attractions: Three major passes in one trip and the chance to be alone in the wilderness.
