“A pleasant trail past lakes through a majestic glacial valley to the head of Titcomb Basin.”— Sarah Baker
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.
