Trout Lake to Weminuche Pass-CDT Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hike this section of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT), and you’ll see that it continues to provide stunning views, high mountain lakes, abundant wildflowers, and wildlife that includes bighorn sheep near Hossick Peak.
At its junction with the Trout Lake Trail, go west on the CDT, following post-markers across the tundra. Look for ptarmigan and wildflowers in the area. You’ll reach the top of a ridge at 0.7 mile and descend to a narrow saddle at 1.3 miles. From here there are excellent views into the Little Squaw Creek drainage. The trail climbs for the next 0.5 mile, staying near the top of the Continental Divide (mostly on the north side); it then descends to 2.5 miles and the Williams Creek Trail, which leads to the west fork of the creek. There are a couple of small lakes here."
