“A great hike to cap out your visit to the Tarryall region.”— David Orner
From Hankins Pass, getting to Tarryall Peak requires off-trail travel, and is not marked as a system trail on the map. Getting to the peak includes sections of off-trail travel. Please ensure you are equipped and well prepared before venturing beyond official and mapped terrain. These areas may or may not be regularly patrolled and access to help may be limited.
At this clearing, head south, the opposite direction of Lake Park Trail, towards a large rock formation. At the rock, stick to the right and begin to circle around to its other side (south), but don't go too far—just follow the edge of the rock and continue south, essentially. Once you've made your way past the rock, you should see the peak off in the distance, and it's time to start climbing.
Continue south, ascending into the forest for approximately 900' at which time you'll find yourself on top of the saddle leading to the peak. Head west and you'll very quickly (within a few tenths of a mile) escape the forest and find yourself at the base of the peak. From here it's just another 100-200 feet of scrambling up to reach the peak which stands at approximately 11,200 ft.
