Mt Wright Summit 6.6 miles Difficult
A short and strenuous day hike to one of the best vantage points in the region with sweeping views of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and Glacier National Park. At 8,855 feet of elevation, Mt. Wright is on of the highest peaks in the area and the 3,500 elevation gain is substantial compared to other hikes in the area. Should you make the trek up Mt. Wright you will likely find solitude on this lightly traveled route other than the resident mountain goats.
