Bull Basin and Pumpkin Trails

Bull Basin and Pumpkin Trails Professional Review and Guide

"A rugged, seldom-hiked trek through alpine forest through much of the Kendrick Peak Wilderness. This is a strenuous hike on steep trails. There is no water, so hikers planning an overnight trip will have to carry all the water needed or do the hike in late spring when there are still snowdrifts near the summit. The rewards are worth the effort.

The rewards are worth the effort. None of the trails are shown on the topographic maps, except for the short segment of the Kendrick Peak Trail used
by this loop. A devastating wildfire burned much of Kendrick Mountain in 2000."

"A rugged hike on less-used trails through beautiful alpine forest with excellent views of the Kendrick Peak Wilderness. This is a strenuous hike on steep trails with no water. Hikers planning an overnight trip will have to carry water or do the hike in late spring when there are still snowdrifts near the summit. The rewards are worth the effort.

The trails are not shown on the topographic maps, except for the short segment of the Kendrick Peak Trail used by this loop. The alpine meadow and splendid sunset and sunrise views south are worth the effort of carrying overnight gear up here. Campfires are not recommended. Trees grow very slowly in the Arctic environment and should not be burned. Carry a backpacking stove to melt snow and cook meals."
