Tower Area: Mt. Washburn Trail

about

  • Yellowstone
  • National Park Trail
Length: 7.1 miles
Trailhead: The signed parking lot for Mount Washburn is located at Dunraven Pass north of Canyon Village. The trailhead for Chittenden Road route is north of Dunraven Pass. Follow the signed, dirt Chittenden Road to the parking lot.

The trail starts from Dunraven Pass on an old road then switchbacks to the top of Mt. Washburn. Enjoy 360-degree views and check out the interpretive area. A shorter alternate route to the top of the lookout is via the Chittenden Road. On the way down you can head east at the junction and traverse the ridgeline toward the Canyon Area, but this option does require arranging for a shuttle/transportation. (This is a high elevation trail. Storms are common; bring rain gear, wool hats, and gloves. Not recommended for persons with heart and/or respiratory problems.)
