Ascent Trip ReportFun Hike on maintained trail. Not steep because of many (about 10) switchbacks towards top of mountain. Very beautiful view from top of the basin to the north of Biscut Basin (don't know name of) and has some views of biscuit basin in distance. In the very far distance you can see the Wind River Range and you can also see the Teton Range. Finally, just to the left you can see the Absaroka Range.
