Mount Fitzpatrick allows easy access to beautiful views of surrounding mountain ranges (wyoming range, tetons, gros ventre). I found the trail somewhat informal as it seemed to branch off in many places. It is simple enough to merely head up the ridge but there are a few steeper scrambles on this mountain (particularily if you head for the true summit which is surrounded by steep bouldered slopes). Although this trail is a mere 5 miles round trip I found myself quite happy to return to my vehicle as the elevation gain is a bit strenous. I would recommend this hike to anyone looking to stretch their legs a bit and enjoy a beatiful mountain view.
