Trail Begins: West end of Leidy Lake
TRAIL ENDS: Mt. Leidy summit
ATTRACTIONS: The hike up the mountain is steep, but there are many places to stop and rest to enjoy the ever-increasing view. During the early summer months, wildflowers line the trail. About 3/4 of the way up, the trail narrows and becomes steep on both sides, requiring extra care and slow going. The final approach to the summit widens out into a mountainous meadow. There are large pines for welcome shade, but the best part is in view. From any direction, the panorama is breathtaking. To the southwest, you can see Slide Lake, the Gros Ventre River, and the Gros Ventre slide on Sheep Mountain. Directly west are the Tetons, and it seems you can see into the range, into Idaho. The north view affords glimpses of the Skull Creek Meadow area, Buffalo Valley and beyond into the Teton Wilderness. As you rest and admire the vista, give thought to taking time for your descent. In some areas of loose rock, it can be trickier than the climb up.
Directions: From Moran Jct., Travel to Leidy Lake which is located southeast of Moran Jct. in the Spread Creek drainage.
