Notes: The Freezeout Ridge Trail is the shortest way to the top of Tiffany Mountain: about 2.2 miles one-way. The northern trail, from Tiffany Springs Campground, is much longer and sometimes difficult to navigate (especially east of Honeymoon Pass), but it has a lot more wildflowers. If possible, try arranging a shuttle from one trailhead to the other with two cars or a bicycle — and be sure to bring a GPS track and know how to use it.
