Mount Washburn Trailhead at Dunraven Pass

A parking lot with restrooms at Dunraven Pass marks the beginning of the trail. This heavily trafficked, 6.4-mile round trip trail has 1,400-feet of elevation gain and offers scenic and breathtaking views. There are no waterfalls or famous geysers along the trail, only expansive views of features like the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone to the east, Hayden Valley to the south, the distant Grand Teton Mountain Range further south, and the Absaroka Mountain Range to the northeast. These scenic views seem to get better and better the higher you climb. Switchbacks ease the uphill ascent and a view of the fire lookout appearing at the second switchback gives you the motivation to complete the hike. During the fall, grizzly bear frequent this area in search of whitebark pine nuts.
