Event description

Description

Location: Ramshorn Peak
Miles/Difficulty: 8.5 miles/Extremely Strenuous
Leaders: Colleen Ferris and Erica Lighthiser

Ramshorn Peak is located in the Gallatin Range of Southwestern Montana. While not particularly high in elevation, it's location makes it fairly prominent. Ramshorn is the tallest peak along the crest of the Gallatin Range between Electric Peak and Hyalite Peak. For those unfamiliar with the topography of the area, that is quite a distance. So while Ramshorn is overshadowed by the Absaroka's to the east and the Madison Range to the west, it stands out in its own right above beautiful Tom Miner Basin. Ramshorn is also easily visible from Lone Peak and thus seen by thousands of skiers at Big Sky each year.

While Ramshorn is a moderate to difficult trail hike, the view from the summit makes it a very attractive destination. The view encompasses many notable features such the Spanish Peaks, Lone Mountain, The Sphinx, The Taylor-Hilgard area, Electric Peak and Mount Cowen. On clear days, one can even see the spires of Pilot and Index Peaks in far northwestern Wyoming. Another unique feature of Ramshorn is its location within the Gallatin Petrified Forest. - Summitpost.org
