A pleasant trail past lakes through a majestic glacial valley to the head of Titcomb Basin.

Overview

Features: Lake — River/Creek — Views — Wildlife

Description

The trail begins at the cut-off of the Indian Basin Trail. The route gently ascends through a small notch before entering Titcomb Basin. The trail passes the lower Titcomb Lake with expansive views of Mt. Helen, Fremont Peak, Mt. Sacagawea and many others.

The trail then ascends passed the small stream between the Titcomb Lakes and then traverses the upper Titcomb Lake. The views into the upper basin slowly open up with views of The Sphinx and to Knapsack Col which can be connected Jean Lakes.

After leaving Titcomb Lakes, the trail starts to become more scarce. You can follow cairns to find the intermittent route. The route passes a beautiful stream which can be filled with wildflowers. You may pass climbing camps with giant rock castles built around them to protect them from the incessant winds.

From the head of the basin, you can continue north in the upper basin to Dinwoody Pass or west to Knapsack Col; both may require snow travel and scrambling.

Tried for summiting Gannett in one day, but my running partner wasn't feeling great at Bonney Pass so we bailed. Gorgeous up there with all the snow 41.5mi — 17h 00m

Muddy, Snowy: Titcomb Basin is currently mostly (~70%) covered in snow or water from snowmelt, making the trail muddy. Slow going.
