Lone Knob Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The trail over Lone Knob is rather strenuous fare for the casual hiker. The terrain is difficult, the trail is poorly defined in places, and the open brush fields found on south-facing slopes can grow witheringly hot on a cloudless afternoon. It is best to schedule an early start so that you can tackle the steep climb from Wilderness Gateway before the hottest hours of afternoon arrive."

This hike goes through a beautiful cirque with large granite boulders scattered through park-like grasses.

Spectacular views when you get to the top. If you go down the other side, the Wind Lakes have a very nice campsite. Had some of the most beautiful alpenglow I've ever seen on the face of Grave Peak. Moose in the lake. Didn't see any fish.
