Climb an 8,564-foot mountain to big views of the Absaroka Range to the northeast and 10,969-foot Electric Peak to the north on this moderate outing. You’ll switchback 1,300 feet up the peak’s northwest ridge, gaining better vistas with each step, before reaching the summit. Continue down the other side of the peak toward Sheepeater Cliffs, then loop back to the trailhead on Bunsen Peak Road. Tack on the 2.4-mile (round-trip) out-and-back spur trail that picks up near the road junction to see Osprey Falls. Take the steep, rocky trail into Sheepeater Canyon to see the multi-tiered waterfall dropping 150 feet into the Gardner River.
