Overview Service & Activities
Overview Service & Activities
About Trapper Peak Trail (133) is maintained every two years. Difficult, steep trail that gets moderate to high use. The climb to Trapper Peak, the highest peak in the Bitterroot Range at 10,157 feet, is a steep, strenuous hike. Beyond the wilderness boundary the trail becomes indistinguishable, but is marked by cairns. It is necessary to pack water as there is none along the trail. Trapper Peak Trail is unsuitable for stock use. The view from Trapper Peak encompasses much of west-central Montana and central Idaho.
