Trail to Pitamakan Pass is now clear

The latest Trail Status update on the park website shows that the trail to Pitamakan Pass is now clear. The 15.4-mile roundtrip hike out of the Two Medicine area is perhaps one of the more underrated hikes in the park. The views from the knife-edge ridge are simply ouitstanding. Several lakes can be seen from either side of the pass, including Pitamakan Lake:

The more adventurous can continue on by taking the trail around Mt. Morgan which leads to Dawson Pass, and then back down to Two Medicine Lake, to create an epic 14.8-mile loop (provided you catch the shuttle boat in time – otherwise it would be 17.6-mile hike!). According to the latest update, "Dawson pass to Morgan ridge (is) clear and dry".
