This hike started at first light from the Two Medicine Lake campground area, going north around Rising Wolf Mountain. Once past the Dry Fork junction, the trail gradually opened up to panoramic viewing. After stopping at Pitamakan Pass to experience the memorable sights, it was on to the Dawson Pass Trail - heading around Mt. Morgan. The section from Mt. Morgan to Flinsch Peak required some rock scrambling, and was narrow in spots.
When at Dawson Pass on a previous hike, it was difficult to just stand in one spot with the high wind gusts - not so this time. There was plenty to see at that location. On the trail going east from Dawson Pass there can be lots of exposed tree roots, so watch your footing. No Name Lake is just off the main trail, and is good to see if you have time. The shuttle boat ride to the eastern Two Medicine Lake dock was a welcome break.
There were some wildlife sightings - bighorn sheep on the switchbacks above Oldman Lake and on the saddle north of Flinsch Peak. My TripAdvisor name was put to good use to help avoid a situation with the day’s first sighting - a grizzly bear next to the trail on the north side of Rising Wolf.
At the end of the day, I appreciated the chance to witness the wild beauty of Glacier Park’s backcountry - one more time. This hike was done in September 2017. Thanks for taking the time to read my review.
