You can climb Mount Washburn using the Chittenden Road Trail or the Dunraven Pass Trail. We took the Dunraven Trail. In July there were many wildfires in bloom and the view from the top is great!

Being from the East, we don't often get a chance to climb 10,000ft mountains. Although we like to hike, many trails up to such elevations are a bit beyond our current readiness as a family. Not Mt. Washburn! This peak is accessed by two trails,...More

No, it's a long hike to the ranger station lookout.
