Description

This trail encompasses a portion of the Devil's Backbone 50 miler.

From the popular Hyalite Creek trailhead follow the Hyalite Creek Trail past dozens of gorgeous waterfalls, through thick coniferous forest, across boulder-strewn scree zones, and then up, up, up a series of switchbacks to feign the luscious Hyalite Lake cirque.

From the basin below Hyalite Peak begins another steep climb along switchbacks and possibly past late season snowfields to the pinnacle of the 10,000+ foot Hyalite Peak. From the peak, your views of a half-dozen mountain ranges unfold as far as the eye can see.
