Barronette Peak Pull-Off

This 10,354-foot (3,156 m) peak is named for Collins Jack Barronette, but spelled incorrectly by the Hayden Geological Survey of 1878, and the misspelling stuck. This pull off, marked by a sign bearing the name, is an excellent location to view the mountain’s face that is decorated with multiple waterfalls in the spring and early summer as snow melt runs off the cliffs. It is also a prime location for spotting brilliant white mountain goats that live on the cliffs. You will need a good pair of binoculars or a spotting scope for a better look at the goats, but it is a favorite for many to come and view them as they move about the steep terrain. If you are lucky you may even catch them when they are playing around and chasing each other around the cliffs, providing a thrilling spectacle for us two-legged visitors to the park.
