Peak Bagging

Peak bagging (also hill bagging, mountain bagging, Munro bagging, or just bagging) is an activity in which hillwalkers and mountaineers attempt to reach the summit of some collection of peaks, usually those above some height in a particular region, or having a particular feature. –Wikipedia

Does this sound like what you are wanting to do? If so, the Golden Trout Wilderness contains 27 named mountains, peaks, and points. Very few have trails to the actual mountain top, so this is not for everyone. Names and elevations were derived from the Tom Harrison map for the Golden Trout Wilderness.

If you plan on summiting these known locations, consider taking a panoramic photo (180 or 360 view). Send it in an email to the site and it will be linked to the peak for others to see. Below is the list of known mountains, peaks, and points within the Golden Trout Wilderness. The approximate elevation has been provided along with which side of the wilderness they exist within.
