Pyramid Pass Trail - Seeley Lake

Length: 4.0 miles (one way)

Trail Begins: End of Forest Road 4381

Trail Ends: Pyramid Pass on Flathead Divide

Pyramid Pass Trail #416 is a popular mainline access route into the subalpine country and the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Outfitters and recreation horse parties frequent this trail thoughout the summer. Hikers are reminded that stock animals are easily spooked when approached in the backcountry.

Pyramid Lake is located over the pass and within the boundaries of the Bob Marshall Wilderness. This is a 10 acre lake at 6927 ft. elevation. From the wilderness boundary sign, stay on the main trail #416 for about .25 miles (you'll be heading downhill) - a trail heading to the lake will be on the North (left) and is not signed but will used and easily visible. Continue on this side trail an additional .25 miles to Pyramid Lake.

Pyramid Peak, located northwest of the Pass, provides an opportunity for the hiker who cannot resist a challenge. There is no maintained trail to the summit of Pyramid Peak. Hikers attempting this climb should be equipped with a topographic map and compass, and be prepared for a steep, rocky scramble.
