Three Fingers Trail is a strenuous 6.7 mile hike. The trail begins at the end of Tupso Pass Road #41 and ends at the summit of Three Fingers. This rough, rooty trail travels from Tupso Pass through dense forest to 4 acre Saddle Lake at 2.5 miles. Travel 2.3 miles farther through subalpine meadows and timber to Goat Flat. From here the trail continues on and reaches Tin Can Gap after 6.2 miles. After this point, the trail becomes technical and requires the use of mountaineering equipment and climbing expertise. Three Fingers Glacier must be traversed, followed by a rocky scramble and ascent of steep ladders to the lookout on the south peak of Three Fingers Mountain.

Directions: From Verlot, Travel west on the Mt. Loop Hwy. for 3.9 miles. Turn right on the north Tupso Pass Rd #41 and follow this road for 18 miles to the trailhead.
