"A strenuous mountaintop trek with an overnight option. The northwest section of Yellowstone has an abundance of outstanding trails to mountaintops. This is one of the best, and like the Electric Peak, Big Horn Peak, and Sepulcher Mountain climbs, it’s for well-conditioned hikers without heart or lung problems. Bunsen Peak and Purple Mountain are more suited to the non-mountain-goat climber. To make it to 10,336-foot Mount Holmes and back in the same day, start as early as you can, dawn if possible. You don’t want to hike out at night, and you want to spend some time on the summit soaking in the view and feeling good about your fitness level." Read more
