Description

Titcomb Basin presents some of the best views of the core Wind River Mountains. The scenery is breathtaking - enjoy views of the glacially carved U-shaped valley, surrounded by some of the tallest peaks in Wyoming.

There are numerous opportunities to explore the area. You can continue to the upper basin following routes to Dinwoody Pass or west to Knapsack Col, take the short jaunt up to Mistake Lake, or just wander amongst the lakes in the basin—the views from the basin are spectacular.

Overnight Trip: Titcomb Basin is accessed from the Elkhart Park Trailhead. The trip into Titcomb Basin is normally taken as an overnight backpacking trip.
