Pyramid Pass Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Pyramid Pass Trail follows old logging roads to the high country and visits several trout-filled lakes on its way into the Bob Marshall Wilderness.

This trail is an excellent choice for hikers seeking a challenging day trip, which might include fishing or a bushwhack up nearby Pyramid Peak. In addition, the trail is a major route for stock traffic traveling into the Youngs Creek valley. This trail sticks primarily to high, well-drained slopes. As a result, it remains in good condition even after heavy rains."

Nobody else on trail or at the huge parking area. Good camping at the parking area and strong verizon signal. Would camp here early in the season but it looks like it would get heavy horse traffic later in the year. Above 6500' there was snow and running water on the trail. Expect wet feet but worth it. The first 3.5 miles or so the trail was in the trees with occasional views down into the Seeley valley and up towards the peaks. Found some black bear tracks on the trail about 1/2 way in. The unnamed tarn just below the pass had a bit of ice left on it and was very scenic. Lost the trail under snow for the last 1/8 mile to the pass. Had a great day!
