Went out with my mom to enjoy the fall leaves and hike Doyle. Weather was perfect--in the mid 50s. The Aspen were also perfect!

Rather than following the "official" route up Doyle from Fremont Saddle, we just went straight up the front face from the inner basin. It was about half a mile as the crow flies from the inner basin to the summit. We switch backed our way up due to the steepness of the mountain, so our distance up was probably about 0.8 to 1 mile. It took us 2 hours to ascend the 1,400 feet. I estimate I could've done it in 1:20 by myself.

The descent was much faster, taking only 1:20. I would've gone faster alone (Mom was being careful because of knee problems), and probably could've descended in 40 minutes.

Anyway, just wanted to leave a trip report for the route straight up Doyle. It was a completely reasonable route, and I would recommend it for ascending Doyle. I'm sure others have taken this route as well.

I will try to figure out how to upload the route file from my Garmin GPS.

The fall colors in the Aspen groves were some of the best I've ever seen!
