Blackcap Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"Wild, alien, and lonely. The alpine countryside near Blackcap Peak is a place few people visit because it takes so much work to get there. Parts of the trail are not well-maintained. Furthermore, the route to Pistol Pass gains nearly 5000 feet on parched and waterless ground. But part of the incentive is the stretch along the Monument Creek Trail as it passes through the dramatic confluence of two gorges carved by Eureka Creek from the west and Lost River from the east. Lonely Blackcap Peak has its own innate dignity in the barren Pasayten Wilderness — a last living link to a simpler past."
