Hike the Taylor Mountain Loop Trail

Rate this Adventure 14.2 miles 4222 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

The Taylor Mountain Loop Trail is a 14.2 mile trail perfect for advanced hikers looking for some solitude on the trail.

The Taylor Mountain Loop is close to Wilson, Wyoming and features beautiful wild flowers and abundant opportunities to see wildlife. The trail is best from July to October, and the trail is shared with dogs and horses.

The suggested trail loop is to go up the Taylor Mountain trail to the top of Taylor Mountain, connecting onto the Coal Creek Trail, and returning via the Moose Creek Trail. The hike up Taylor mountain is steep, but you'll be rewarded with mountain meadows and (typically) solitude.

As you begin to arrive at the summit of Taylor Mountain the trail disappears in a meadow. Just traverse the meadow, making sure to head NE towards a large pile of boulders. As you approach the boulder pile you will see the trail to your right ascending into the trees. The connection onto Moose Creek Trail requires crossing the creek, which can be up to knee height depending on snow melt. 

Be bear aware when using this trail! If you are camping, bring bear cans and know proper bear protocol. Main Basin is the best spot to refill and pump water.
