Yellowstone Mount Washburn Day Hike
A central location and sweeping view make Mount Washburn a must see destination for many visitors to Yellowstone National Park. Mount Washburn takes its name from Henry Washburn who led the expedition that mapped out what would become Yellowstone National Park. This hiking tour brings you along a trail to the top of Mount Washburn that was originally an old road that serviced stagecoaches and early automobiles before becoming a hiking destination. The trail climbs steadily through the different zones of pine forest before reaching a large open meadow complete with fire lookout station and sweeping views at 10,249’ in elevation! Enjoy a well-deserved lunch while enjoying the views before descending back to Dunraven Pass where the hike began.
