Overview
Titcomb Basin is undoubtedly the jewel of the Wind River Range and perhaps the jewel of the Rocky Mountains, or the northern Rockies at the very least. The area is heavily visited by climbers and backpackers alike for this reason. The Wind River Range receives heavy snowfall during the winter and for this reason Titcomb Basin remains snowed in until late July nearly every year.


The Hike
Titcomb Basin is a premier backpacking and climbing destination that can be reached via a combination of several different trails and trailheads. However, the Pole Creek Trail out of the Elkhart Park Trailhead is the most popular choice and offers the most direct and perhaps easiest access to the basin.

Check out the Official Route and Triplogs.
