Gallatin County Highpoint Trip Report

My approach was the Dudley Creek trail, as was proposed in the previous report. This is indeed a much easier option.

I left the Dudley Creek trailhead at 6:30 am, followed the gentle and obvious trail, and arrived at Dudley Lake 9 am. From the lake, it was an easy hike north-northwest up the drainage to the prominent saddle, then I followed the (class 3) ridge west-southwest to the summit arriving at 10 am. The small wind break is still there.

Made it back to the Dudley Creek trailhead by 12:30 pm.

Trip statistics: 11 miles (round trip), 6 hours (round trip), elevation gain 10,705 - 6,505 = 4,000 feet.
